How to take a proper photo of a person in mid-air with a cellphone camera.


Kinda long title that one. Think its the biggest one here so far πŸ˜‰ so anyway my recent idea of taking a mid-air shot with a Cellphone camera came out a winner. The Secret to it is the timing.

Requirements: a willing victim, one cellphone camera, the beach(for a soft landing), a tailor and paramedics at hand πŸ˜›

Step 1. Ask the subject to stand at a distance. preferably at the height relative to you. ( you can also use this idea to murder a particularly stupid person..hey am just saying)

Step 2. Align the Camera in the direction of the subject.

Step 3. Ask the Subject to start his run up towards you.

Step 4. Just before the subject launches upwards Click it. Applicable to Nokia Cams which are slow and will take the next frame of capture which usually frustrates me a lot.

Step 5. Step out of the way of the Subject. you dont want any “crash” landing πŸ˜‰

Step 6. Voila! Its done.
