Natsumi Hayashi is a creative levitation photographer from japan, She’s inspired by imaginative stories and images that are timeless, mysterious and edgy. She’s a is practicing her technique in public places also which might feel awkward to some looker and specially for photographer but hey this is how you makes these out of the box images.
She is also kind enough to share us how she did it.
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.
