Looking to do a fun photo project with friends and family? Or just want to add a little creativity to your weekend photos? Here are a series of tips and ideas for how to take amazing jumping photos that will be fun for the subject and photographer!
1. The Basics
Using an iPhone? Press and hold the camera button to shoot in burst mode. You can then select from the burst of photos to find the best photo. Alternatively, you can use a camera with a self-timer and a tripod to get everyone in the photo.
2. Capture Silhouettes and Shadows
Shoot against the sun to capture the silhouette of your subject. As you can see in the photo below, one of the best places to do this is at beach during sunset!

3. Land on a Couch or Bed
If you choose a soft landing place such as a couch or bed you can capture a jump at a new angle. Kids can get more height this way and try out different poses as they jump. Plus, it’s a great excuse to break the rules!

4. Use Props
Add an extra level of creativity with props. Create a Mary Poppins style photo by holding an umbrella. Use a relaxed posture to recreate her confident persona. Got a guitar player? Capture the classic rocker jump. Or use a bunch of balloons to jump and create the illusion of floating with the balloons.
