Natsumi Hayashi: Alias yowayowa, the Levitator
Now who said that levitating need effort, or magic? Well, this person proves you wrong, in any way. Presenting the levitating girl from Tokyo, Japan: Natsumi Hayashi, the woman behind Yowayowa Camera Woman Diary.
Using her 5D Mark II (HOMG, I’ll wait for the 5D Mark III!), together with a Pentax lens (with adaptor), an EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM and/or the EF 50mm f/1.2L USM lens, she levitates effortlessly using a self-timer, and sometimes, she would ask a friend to help her.
Tricks of the Trade:
– Shutter speed is usually 1/500, and in darker lighting, 1/320 is used.
– To make a composition, manual focus is used.
– Self-timer is activated.
– ALWAYS, as in always bring a tripod with you!
I will post some of my (fail!) levitating shots right here! Please don’t laugh alright!
