My wife and my younger 6mo old son went to a baby shower and I thought it would be a good opportunity to spend some time with my older son at the park.
I made myself a DIY slider "Zaza slider" and this is the first time I took it out as well as the first time I had to take out the Steadicam Merlin outdoors. So instead of calling this "Slider Test "or "Steadicam Test" and calling it a day, I figure I'd try something different and film my day with my boy - while I "test" these tools out ;-)
What I found is that trying to stoop down at my son's height is incredibly difficult with the Merlin! Although it took me awhile to get the 2 second drop test down, it will take me a long time to master that tool.
Later, when we went out to eat, I stashed away the slider and tried sliding on the table instead. I realized that a 1,000mm slider is just a little too big to haul around with a kid! ;-) I might get the Indislidermini instead.
I hope to improve my technique so that I can provide visual stories of my kids' lives growing up. I'm a photographer, but I recently fell back in love with video now that my cameras have it built in.
Regardless, we both had fun!
