The pictures above are from the amazingly talented Natsumi Hayashi from Tokyo. Her photographs make you wonder if she's actually floating or if they are in fact photo-shopped. The answer to the second question is no. So how does she do it? She sets a self-timer or gets a friend to help her press the shutter and basically ... jumps. Easy? Not so. Sometimes it takes up to 300 jumps before she finds the perfect shot.
"In being free of gravity in the pictures, I am also not bound to societal conventions. I feel as though I am not tied to many things and able to be my true self."
"I hope the viewers can feel emancipation from the stress of daily life when they see my levitation photography.”
- Natsumi Hayashi
