Day 23: Jumping On The Trampoline

by Ivan Steenkamp January. 25, 2017 575 views

My youngest brother Isak asked me to take some photos of him doing tricks on the tramp. He is quite the acrobat! The sun was in a pleasing position, which highlighted the side of his little body. Jumping on the trampoline is one of his favourite things to do!

He makes lots of funny facial expressions when he jumps!

A young boy doing star jumps on trampoline. leaves in the foreground is blurred and partially in front of him.

The apple tree in the foreground hid his face a little, which I like!

I can't do that anymore!

I almost looks like he is sitting on an invisible chair...

The photos are in a way portraits but also action photos, so I think they will work for week 4 theme.

Photographed with my D5300 and 50mm prime.

Edited with Photoshop, Color Efex Pro and Viveza.


I hope you are all doing well in your photographic endeavours!

These are absolutely fantastic. I'd love to draw some of these action poses! Something worth trying is putting some sand on the trampoline while someone jumps. It creates interesting cloud shapes and cool lighting effects.

#4 is so much fun! Thanks for entering the weekly theme Ivan.
Keep up the great work. I love the colours in all your photos,
none of them feel under or overly saturated. Feels natural!

Thanks Ben! I try my best to create natural colour. Color Efex Pro is one of my favourite tools I use to get it right!
