The Anatomy of a Jump

Twitter
First Anatomy of a Jump: Were shot last Christmas 2011 break at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve.....

Goal of jump: Jumping for Joy celebrating the beauty of reflection of cliffs on sand.

Camera Setting: To freeze the action meant very fast shutter speed, however, because this is at low light (close to sunset) the pictures may be blurry at very fast shutter speed needed to freeze the action. We used a combination of fast shutter speed (1/600) seconds, medium aperture because we wanted to show off the cliffs too and the reflection (f/8) and increased the ISO from 100 to 400.

1st step: wave at camera :) while doing a little bit of  forward bend 
 2nd step: jump into the air
 3rd step: joyful landing, look down to check your reflection.
 4th step: knee and forward bend again
 5th step: do stretch jump
 6th step: land with extended arms and leg
 7th step: Look at the Camera and Laugh :)
2nd Anatomy of A Jump: were shot at Mt Woodson, San Diego County

This birthday weekend (pretending jumping down the giant boulder )......

Goal: To pretend flying 2800+ ft high in the air.

Camera Settings: shutter speed (1/800), aperture (f/7), ISO-200.

1st step: hike Mt. Woodson (2800+ ft elevation).
2nd step: forward and knee bend
 2nd step: jump
 3rd step: curl the leg so that it will look higher
4th step: Fly away....

  4. Great shots, Betchai. DJ is envious of you living in such a wonderful place rich with photography potential. FL is kind of boring after a while, lol!

  11. You look like you are flying in both the scenarios. That must be how outdoors makes you feel.
