Take a Jumping Picture

COMPLETED BY 158

LISTED 162

The lower you go, the higher they will look

If you shoot from a lower angle, it will appear as though there is more space between the subject and the ground. So get down low, sit or squat near the ground, and shoot up at your subject if you want the appearance of height.

Remind your subjects to relax their faces

A lot of times when people are jumping, they tighten their faces at the same time. It’s a simple thing, but it makes a big difference. If that doesn’t work, make them laugh. Laughing and jumping gives a carefree feel to the image.

Instead of jumping straight up and down, have your subjects try creating shapes with their bodies. It will appear as if they are floating rather then jumping.

Use the continuous burst mode on your camera

You can take several images while holding the shutter button down. That way you can catch the entire jump, from takeoff to landing, and you won’t miss that perfect moment when they are at the top of their jump.
