Jump Around

I'm a lurker on a blog of a friend of a friend. I've never met this kid and he's only posted three times. But, I have been inspired. See, he's a big fan of jumping pictures. And, he likes them so much, it's consumed him and it's all he blogs about. Through him and his blog, I have discovered my own love of jumping pictures. Not only are they fun to look at, but they are ridiculously fun to take. I'm still an amature, not nearly as good as the pro who can create shapes and other themed jumps. But here are a few of my best shots:





I'm sure that many more jumping pictures are soon to come. I've discovered that it's a great way to add spice to an otherwise beautiful, but sort of boring, landscape shot (such as the latter two at Detroit Lake). As the friend of the friend put it best, "The jumping picture plants either an awe, a smile, or a perplexity that diverts the viewer's attention from the ability to be photogenic of the subject, to the wonderment of the photograph." Amen brother.

I feel like you are jumping extrememly high in these photos. In fact, you almost look super human. I don't think my jumping photos would be quite as impressive, but I think I will attempt such a shot in the very near future... maybe if I got a running start...

I LOVE these pictures! I think we're good beginner jumpers. I wonder, do you have to be in love to make jumping pictures as well as the boy blogger who you got the idea from.
