The fact that cameras are now portable enough to slip into our tiniest back pockets and clutches means daily opportunities for fun and impromptu photo sessions. If you're tired of posing to look slim or just taking nightscape photos you can always spice up your repertoire by taking cute spinning photos. If you have a kid, you're probably well versed in the wonder that is spinning. If you don't, it's time you grab a camera, partner (preferably someone who's still in grade school), head out to the park and commit photo jojo's guide to memory.

For the four step guide,

Step One
Position your friend behind you and the child in front, with your friend holding the camera above your arms and pointing it down toward the child. Select a slow-ish shutter speed of 1/15th sec to blur the background.

Step Two
Altogether now: spin!

Step Three
Once our giddy little subject is aloft, advise your friend to start snapping.

Step Four
Review your photos, and repeat as necessary. (We’d wait for your head to stop spinning first.)

When you're finished, I suggest you follow photojojo's advice and join the flickr spinners group.
