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.
