We Scare Because We Care
When my son was a little younger he liked to jump out of hiding spots in the hopes of scaring the ba-geebies out of me.
When he was 7 years old, scaring his dad, or being scared by his dad were awesome moments.
I was fortunate enough to capture a few of these precious times on my camcorder.
Even now, he gets a kick out of seeing how scared he got!
Here’s some tips for getting your own scary adventures on video…
• Use the Night Vision Feature on your camcorder. Many SONY models have infrared built in to them. (I was using a SONY PC101 for this video)
• Buy a third party Infrared video light. Most camcorders will be able to pick up a picture just fine with one.
• Put your camera on a tripod. Keep it in the corner of a room ,where it won’t get tripped on by your unsuspecting offspring.
• Be patient and wait in the dark for the right moment. I waited for my wife to send Ryan to say good night to me. Then I played Hide-and -Seek. It took over 10 minutes of me waiting in the dark before he stumbled into my trap! Mha-ha-ha-ha!
Capturing on camera those cherished times with your family is what it’s all about.
