OK, here’s a pretty cool “photo trick” you can do with your Digital Camera ( or any camera for that matter ) that will create some interesting shots. It’s called, “Levitation Photography”. Basically you just try to capture your model as they are jumping in mid-air. The main thing for your Model to consider is to try to look very casual as they reach the high point of their jump. The finished photo creates the illusion that they are “flying” or “floating in air”.
Check out this recent video from Kia over at DigitalRev TV. He tries this technique with some success. The real trick is to take many photos & hope for that one fun accident where everything just works out, ha ha! Also, Kia was inspired by an Artist named Natsumi who has a Photography Blog called YOWAYOWA CAMERA WOMAN DIARY. We have shown a few of her photos here but please be sure to check out her website for some major inspiration!

This video is funny, because it’s a true response many Freelance Designers can get while working out in the field, but it’s also pretty serious. It’s all about Clients who think Photographers should work for free “because their work is easy to do. Plus, if they do it for free it’s not a big deal because they will get a free by-line which will give them good exposure”, LOL! Graphic Designers, Artists, Web Masters, Illustrators, Copy Writers, etc… can all relate to this! Plus, the character’s response to this is very well thought out and could be the very thing you need to say to your next Client. Remember, “Exposure Doesn’t Pay Bills”.
