see this photo...i'm thinking multiple jumps, and one tired women.
the newest stunt after planking
Eh? Don't have to jump so many times... PS will do, tsk tsk
I remember being enamoured at Rosie Hardy's attempts; I think she's got a tutorial somewhere on her flickr
Endure. In enduring grow strong.
What you don't see is the platform she's jumping off from that has been pped away. Lol
That girl has a blog. She just times it properly. She has done so many she has it down pat. She also explains how she does it.
ah, that would explain alot of things...
How to take "Today's Levitation" (how I actually do) [2011/03/31]
- Equipments and shutter speed
Camera body: Canon EOS 5D Mk2
Lenses: Canon EF50mm F1.2L USM, EF24-70mm F2.8L USM, PENTAX 67 lenses (with adaptors)
Tripods: Gitzo's rapid-pole 3 steps with ball heads (from 1980s)
Shutter speed: 1/500 sec. or faster (1/320 sec. can be used in a darker condition)
- With a self-timer
EOS 5D Mk2 has a 10sec. timer as it's longest timer set up. This means that I can get away as far as 10 second distance from the camera after I press the shutter release button.
First, I get a composition and a focus manually.
Then I press the shutter release, run to the right position for a levitation as checking the camera's blinking red LED counts down 10 seconds and jump by my intuition.
In this manner, I need to jump over and over to get the right shot.
- Ask someone to press the shutter release button
When I take my levitation farther away from the camera than 10 second distance, I ask someone (mostly my friend) to press the shutter release button. First, I ask my friend to be a stand-in in a proper position to get a composition and a focus.
Then I go to the position to levitate, and my friend come to the camera (we switch our position) to press a shutter release button in time with my jumps.
