Natsumi Hayashi: The Flying Photographer

The imaginative work of Japanese photographer Natsumi Hayashi takes the viewer on  mid-air journey through Tokyo.  Levitating in seemingly ordinary scenes Hayashi explains the tricky nature of the process:
“First, I get a composition and a focus manually. Then I press the shutter release, run to the right position for a levitation as I check the camera’s blinking red LED counting down 10 seconds and jump by my intuition. In this manner, I need to jump over and over to get the right shot.”
