This was one of my first attempts at doing jumping self-portraits on a trampoline last spring.
I am often asked if people are jumping on trampolines in my photos… only a couple of people have actually done their photos with me on a trampoline.
Jumping on the trampoline is a lot of fun but I think its much more fun and interesting to capture people using their own joy and energy to propel them into the air. I love how surprised people are when they see how high they can actually jump off the ground.
A lot of people have told me that they don’t think they can jump very high and it alters the way they perceive themselves when they see the photos. It always feels good to do something you didn’t think you could do.
