This is gallery of photographs by and all featuring Natsumi Hayashi, a Tokyo teenager who takes hundreds of pictures of herself jumping until she captures just the right one where, instead of jumping, it looks like she’s levitating. That, or she just takes one and Photoshops the hoverboard out.
Natsumi Hayashi loves to levitate. Always equipped with her Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Natsumi photographs herself floating around Tokyo. To achieve the look of levitation it’s crucial that you don’t appear to be jumping. That means a controlled facial expression and lack of movement (i.e., hair and body flailing about). It should look like a moment frozen in time, not mid-jump.
