Theres certain knack to getting good jumping shots. Its all about timing and focus. Firstly, you must keep focus on your expression, I always tend to open my mouth and end up looking surprised or clenching my fists and look like I'm springing for attack. There's so many variables when you leap that most of the shots don't turn out - for example with these shots I can see dozens of flaws, hands out of focus, hair not flowing quite right etc etc etc. These shots are just for my blog though, not for V mag, so I'm not exactly going to be spending hours getting that perfect image. In the last pic my face looks really weird, my neck too elongated... but I love the leap - I'm really going for it! I don't really use alot of energy in each jump, its got to be short and sharp and usually needs to be snapped around the zenith of the leap. Its alot of fun - one of my favourite moods to shoot at a job. Energy!!!
This outfit is playing it safe with monotones. When in doubt - go back to basics! The circle scarf is my latest treasure from American Apparel. I thought I wouldn't get a chance to wear it in the warmer weather but it was fairly cool this morning and it makes for a great cardigan.
Thanks so very much to Chicisimo for naming my outfit Best of the Week. Chicisimo is an excellent repository for all things street style and style diary blogging - check it out!
