Have you ever snapped a shot of a friend in a fun moment, when all the stars aligned that created an image that feels like magic?

Let’s take a look at some images created from a real master of levitation photography, Natsumi Hayashi.

She takes self-portraits of her flying around Tokyo, Japan…or so it seems. You might have seen this kind of thing before, but Natsumi has such an elegant and uplifting eye for the concept!

 The secret behind “levitation” photography?

Really, there are a few simple secrets; there’s no special equipment needed, just an everyday camera (which of course nearly everyone has on hand in one device or another nowadays), but there needs to be special consideration for a little timing, some creativity, and of course, you’ll need a really good friend.

Get ready to have a load of fun and laughs, as well as some great pictures, because we are going to show you the world’s a wonderful place today just by this alone! I always say there’s not enough fun in the world!, so today we’re going to change that.

Take a look at some of our favorites, or check out more of her work at YowaYowaCamera.com by clicking here to see more of Natsumi’s photos.

Okay, you get the idea: basically the sky is the limit. What a great afternoon it would be to just head out with a friend, camera or cell phone in hand, and see what you come up with!
