Here’s a secret: I keep a list of poses and photo ideas that I come across on Instagram, and every time I go out to take pictures, I try to incorporate one of those little inspirations. In case you can’t tell, the goal of this shoot was to get a decent jumping shot. I discovered that the easiest way to do it is to keep jumping until the camera goes off–trying to time a single jump was way too hard for me! Unfortunately, I did not master my facial expressions, but I guess that’s something to work on for next time!
Anyway, in addition to getting that silly jump shot, I was also racing against time. I don’t think you can really tell by the pictures, but I was shooting during a break in a terrible summer storm. The whole time, I could see lightning fork through the sky followed by claps of thunder, but somehow I was able to manage a good hour of pictures without any disruption!
