Japanese photographer Natsumi Hayashi takes photographs of herself “levitating.” Apparently, she simply leaps in place, and through a combination of graceful posing and expert calibration of her camera’s aperture and shutter speed, achieves a very convincing, thoroughly charming effect. She posts new shots on an ongoing basis at yowayowacamera.com.
