“Congratulations on being chosen as the winning photo of the Holland Herald photo competition …”

Sometimes failing can be the best thing.

This is my dear friends Jakob and Per trying to do a high five over the tip of the paradise island Ilet Blanc in the Caribbean ocean outside of Guadeloupe. Bad high five, great photo opportunity.

Photo tips:

When taking photos of someone jumping and you want them to feel like they are as high up in the air as possible, always position yourself as low as possible.

This photo is taken from sitting position to balance three things.

  1. To make Jakob in the air feel as he is as high as possible.
  2. To make sure that Per on the beach is above the horizon line to make him pop out more from the background.
  3. To not have any horizontal line going through the head of the girl sitting in the sand.
