Light as a Feather

Came across Natsumi Hayashi on Google+ and after checking out her blog - yowayowacamera, I was so inspired by her creativity and photography techniques. She takes levitating self-portraits and the pictures all look so amazing.

The above are some of my favourite shots; they really look like she's floating in the air.  I showed hubby her blog and he was also intrigued by her amazing photos and he suggested we should do something like that. Frankly, it was so much harder than I thought. I needed to jump at least 30+ times in order to get a decent shot and my legs were so tired afterward.  I realized I am not a jumper at all, but at least I got some workout out of this photo shoot. I have no idea how Natsumi did it in her photos, they look so effortless. On the other hand, hubby did much better than me. He only jumped fewer than 5 times and already had some usable shots. 



Do I look like I am floating in the air?

FLY MOM! hehe

Hubby is already levitating on his first attempt

Hubby looks like a robot walking in air
 
Sister also joined us and had a few attempts

If you want to find out how this is done, please check out Natsumi's blog.

  6. Usually these shots are done by taking two shots, use a tripod take a photo of the landscape. Leave the camera in the exact same place set up a stool or a crate or something kneel/lay/stand take another shot. Go into photo shop and layer your two shots over the top then simply erase the stool.
