Another Levitation ( Defying Gravity)

Natsumi Hayashi’s Definition of Levitation

She says that a JUMP, is composed of many movements. And those who goes up must come down. Natsumi Hayashi does not call the photos she posted on Yowayowa Camera Woman Diary “jump shots”.The Levitation photos were suppose to emphasize the natural flow of time, said Ms. Hayashi, who usually shoots with a shutter speed of 1/500th of a second or faster.

 

TO LEVITATE is to dance in the Air in a vacuum of time and space.

Here’s some steps to get the Look

Clothing can move in a way that reveals the fact you are jumping so that is something to keep in mind. Think about tucking in your shirt if it appears too loose. Keeping your hair in place with lots of gel and hairspray can help or simply wear a hat.

WHAT YOU NEED
Camera (preferably that has a self-timer)
Tripod or something similar

HOW TO CAPTURE YOUR OWN LEVITATION PHOTO:

  1. Setup your camera on a tripod, or have an assistant get in position to take the photo.
  2. Set your camera to use a fast shutter speed – fast enough to freeze motion (such as 1/500 or faster).
  3. Set your self-timer to take the photo (if you do not have an assistant).
  4. Jump off the ground or step off an object at the exact moment the camera is about to take a photo.

* It takes a lot of practice to get the perfect shot. So, hang in there and have patience. ^_^*

LET YOUR IMAGINATION and CREATIVITY work and soon you’ll be able to create a masterpiece like Natusumi Hayashi’s Levitation Photos.

Mt. Fuji “Shibazakura” Flower Festival

life to reset

If there is one thing that best represent  Japan’s natural beauty, it has to be the highest mountain- Mt. Fuji.   The 3,766m symmetrical cone shaped mountain has inspired poet and artist for decades, where it was often depicted with the top- half covered in snow.

My first visit to the mountain was last year, during the hiking season where the  picturesque snow-capped was gone.  I was a bit sad to see the mountain on its “ordinary” state, so I promised to myself that on one fine day, I shall return to Yamanashi prefecture, to see the mountain on all its glory.

To view the mountain requires exceptional timing and preferably “sunny, clear” weather condition. So, I was checking out the weather forecast almost everyday, as I don’t want to waste a 3 hours commute to the unpredictable spring season.

Last Sunday was just the right day that I was waiting…

The Beauty of Levitation

I came across with this picture over the internet a few days ago and I was pretty amazed of its beauty and style. It was taken by the famous Japanese Teen photographer named Natsumi Hayashi. She became sensational not only in Japan but worldwide last year with her self photographed masterpiece. Her secret weapon for achieving the look? She is always equipped with her Canon EOS 5D Mark II ( FYI: It is was of the most expensive DSLR cameras in the market last year) and very good at controlling her bodily movements along with her facial expressions while jumping up in the air. A huge round of applause for Natsumi-san. ^_^

Annual Solar Eclipse

Annual Solar Eclipse

Taken in Japan

Millions of Asians watched as a rare “ring of fire” eclipse crossed their skies early Monday.

The annual eclipse, in which the moon passes in front of the sun leaving only a golden ring around its edges, was visible to wide areas across the continent. It will move across the Pacific and also be seen in parts of the western United States.

In Japan, “eclipse tours” were arranged at schools and parks, on pleasure boats and even private airplanes.

The eclipse was broadcast live on TV in Tokyo, where such an eclipse hasn’t been visible since 1839.

My New Humble Abode..

At last the long wait is over! My new haven is finally up *cheers*.I have realized that Facebook was not the proper place for me to air my feelings and crazy ideas due to the long list of people who knows me personally. In fact, when you will post something crazy on your status it updates on their system faster than the speed of light and appears on your whole social connection like a news flash.Before you know it, you’ll be receiving a call from your parents urging you to come up with a pretty good explanation before pressing the “accept call” button.

Anyway I’m really aware of the thing that we call “netiquette”, so I won’t be sharing very crazy ideas here.I will just start drafting my ideas and publish it soon.
*Because of the Fact that I am not a native speaker or writer of the English Language it will take sometime for my articles to get published.You know what I mean. If you don’t,just read my description on the homepage.Thankies. xoxo
