The Art of Jumping Photos

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As a seriously snap-happy traveller, my friends and I have mastered the art of jumping photos. They turn the mundane shot next to (place landmark here) into something fun and extraordinary. It sometimes takes a few tries to sync everyone’s jump in unison due to amateur photography/ self-timer skills; however, it is sooooo worth it!

On our South American adventure; Alex, Louise and I learnt to perfect our cameras’ self-timer function. On average, we took about three or four shots to ensure that we had a great jump. Yes, we did look like complete idiots jumping up and down in the middle of a busy tourist destination like Sugar Loaf mountain in Rio de Janeiro. Yes, some people thought we were stark raving mad but others smiled and laughed. We secretly know that we inspired these onlookers to do the exact same jumping photo at their next destination.

Jumping photos are not the most flattering compositions with flesh and clothing defying gravity as you leap into the air on the count of three; however, they are guaranteed to make you giggle and will also develop a mental photo in your memory. Usually my face looks like I am mid-way through a sky-dive but it makes me laugh and adds some diversity to my travel photo albums.

I have started a collection of jumping photos along my travels and will continue to do so. Perhaps I will even incorporate some props in the future. I mean, who doesn’t love props 🙂 In the slide-show above you can see my friends and I jumping across countries from Peru, Bolivia, Brazil, Mexico, Canada all the way to Zanzibar.

Go on, I dare you – master the art of jumping photos! 🙂

    Great post Katie! I love taking jumping photos too, but always a bit embarrassed to publish them as they often expose my not so little tummy 🙂
