    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.
