Lighter than air

The other day I came up with a concept for a self-portrait I wanted to do.  It wasn’t by any means anything original, I’d just never really done anything like it before and wanted to find the best way to do it.  The general idea was to freeze me mid-air doing something.

I set up two lights in my room, but I was lazy so I didn’t softbox them like I should have, and I put my camera on a tripod as low as I could get it.  I set the timer to two-seconds and then kept lifting out my legs from under me right as the timer expired.  I wasn’t technically jumping because I didn’t want my head to get caught outside of the frame.
