Time-stretch Portrait with the Spinner 360°


“Scan” a face with your Spinner 360°

The Spinner 360 allows you not only to make these fast 360 degree images, you can also move it slowly in two different ways:

1st let the cord go back in slowly by holding the ring or
2nd turn the camera itself or the handle.

We need technique 2. And someone you want to take a portrait of. Now take your Spinner in lower light conditions and start taking the portrait by pointing the camera at the part you want to shoot, advance with the handle and continue walking around the other.

Start at his/her right ear (not your viewing right his/her body right) and go via the nose to the left ear. Well of course you can start somewhere else, this is only for the direction so you have the portrait stretched in the correct way.

This technique is similar to the Horizon Strobe Flash Portrait Technique, but now you do not need a strobe flash. Handy! And you can make the portraits even longer or turn around more often.

Enjoy this tipster and share some results, please.
