Man oh man, who knew self-timer jump pics could be such a task! Today I thought I’d do a little fun post and share our fail after fail when we tried to get a solid jumping pics. During our adventures in La Push, we made one last beach stop before heading back home. And I was set on getting some solid jumping pics in, which turned out to be quite the venture in itself.
There was a huge fallen tree on the beach that was very … branchy? Yep I just made up that word, but it’s the truth.
I used the tree as my mock tripod since I forgot to bring one.
Lets just say I was a little brave in doing this because if the camera fell it probably would have been a goner.
I set the timer for 10 seconds because I needed time to run to the specific spot for the picture.
I can’t even tell you the amount of times that I had to do this routine. Quite the workout.
Jump after jump, I was clearly the failbot because I would either jump too early or too late.
My good friend who happens to be well over 6 feet kept saying jump and for some reason I jumped when he did.
Uh hello, it doesn’t work like that if you’re a shorty like me.
As you can tell he was actually way better at this than I was, but the pictures turned out to be priceless.
We couldn’t stop laughing on the beach, there was a big group that passed us who probably thought we were being completely ridiculous. But hey, no shame no game!
For a while, I’ve been wanting to do a force grip picture, I’m probably not even calling it the right thing.
But if you guys know Star Wars, you know exactly what I’m talking about.
It was a success and we were pretty happy with the way it turned out.
The pictures definitely speak for themselves, I’m just happy that I caught every single fail on camera!
I’m always up for jump pictures, but they’re trickier to capture than you think.
Do you have any funny stories with jump pictures?
