Shot of the Week: Hump Day Jump Day (Malibu, USA)

Shot of the Week: Diana jump at Zuma Beach in Malibu, California

The two of us have been keeping VERY busy this week prepping for the launch of our new photography website, The Photon Collective. As a result, we’ve visited a variety of landscapes. Lake Tahoe over the weekend, Rocky Peak on Monday… And on Wednesday, it was the beach, in my old college town of Malibu, California.

This week’s photo is a shot of me jumping as the daylight faded away at Zuma Beach. We’d just finished capturing some footage for our website’s video teaser, which we cut together last night! (Keep reading for the video at the bottom of this post.)

The above photo was taken with the Sony a7s and Sony 55mm f/1.8

A Peek at Our Footage from this Past Week

As I mentioned above, we were at Zuma on Wednesday for a photography project we’re working hard on. On February 10, 2015 we’ll be launching The Photon Collective, and we’re trying to ramp up excitement with this teaser.

If you like our video and want to show your support, please give it a thumbs up! (Watch it here or view in full screen mode to see the thumbs up symbol at the top.)

I hope you enjoyed this shot of the week!  Check back next week or subscribe on the right for more photos and videos from our travels. We’re heading to the desert to shoot more footage this weekend, so we should have some beautiful desert scenery to look forward to.

    Just have to say that I absolutely LOVE the photo of you jumping! It really got my attention 🙂

      Thanks Helena. Jump shots are probably my favorite type of portrait. A little cliche, I know, but they sure are fun!

        Yeah, they’re the best! So fun! I love photographing people jumping but I’m not much of a jumper myself though 🙂

          I totally understand. Getting the timing right can be tricky and a bit exhausting. 🙂

          • Helena January 28, 2015 / 2:35 pm

            Yeah, I definitely agree with you on that. I love continious shooting when it comes to jumpshots 😀

            Yes! Continuous mode is gold!
