Make a Smartphone Stabilizer

When I was a boy I eagerly looked forward to my copy of Boys’ Life magazine arriving at my door. Now as life comes full circle, I have the cover feature article in the June, 2014 issue entitled “Hot Shots.” It gives shooting tips for making better photographs with a smartphone. The article also announces the summer photo competition for Scouts.

Additionally, I have another article in the same issue on making a smartphone stabilizer. Construction articles are done as an illustration and David Brooks did a fine job. Brooks also made some helpful hints to improve the stabilizer.
