Yowayowa II

After singing her praises back in March, I still can’t get over Natsumi Hayashi‘s self-portraits and continue to be in awe of her most recent levitations. Without any aid of a rigging system or photoshop, she is able to capture the most effortless and perfect mid-air poses with just a 10-second timer and a tripod. Wouldn’t you just love to see her in action? WTF amazing.

    Wait wait wait…I always thought these were photoshopped! Seriously, they aren’t?! That is incredible! I would love to see her do this. She must fall all over the place. I bet it look hilarious, but these photos…amazing!

      @Hannah, I was thinking the same thing – she must definitely fall all the time! No pain, no gain! 😉

    I love her stuff, it’s always blown me away. I think she actually can fly, and is just pretending with that whole timer/jumping thing.

  44. I absolutely love her photos! I have her blog in my reader and check it obsessively for updates. Besides being awesome pictures, she is a cutie pie with great style.

    My kids and I tried to take levitation photos (the kids are all under 7). It was so fun! I highly recommend it to parents/siblings/babysitters/aunties, etc.
