This week we are going to look at portrait photography in a different way. By asking our subjects to jump in the air while we photograph we will accomplish two things.
  • First learn how to get sharp in focus images
  • And get our subject to let down their guard.

Please read the following articles.

Articles on Philippe Halsman

Taken from
"Halsman felt that asking a person to jump shifted their attention from being photographed to the act of jumping, thereby revealing the subject's inner personality," said Sundstrom. "In fact, Halsman compared his ability to reveal character to the work of a good psychologist."
"It can't be done by pushing the person into position or arranging his head at a certain angle," Halsman said. "It must be accomplished by provoking the victim, amusing him with jokes, lulling him with silence, or asking impertinent questions which his best friend would be afraid to voice."
