Selfie Magical – Jumpin’ Jenny

Ok … I did it.  I took an opportunity and ran with it.  I absolutely wanted to do this [last] weeks JUMP with Elena over at Selfie Saturday.  You gotta be able to laugh at yourself occasionally, right?  I received my remote in the mail and that finalized it, I was going to JUMP for the camera!

I learned you CAN take your tripod and camera with you to your Zumba class and use the beautifully lit room to JUMP your cares away!  My Zumba instructor was laughing at the pics, but she thought it was fun! She asked me to try some Zumba moves and photograph.  So I did … that is STILL not photo worthy, sorry folks.  No one needs to see themselves flash frozen in a mid hip swing.

So here we go:  Jumpin’ Jenny! I did it!


Just Jump for the JOY!

And not only did I do it, but decided to be a big goofball near the end and:


Boop-die-doop! Playtime shouldn't be forgotten!

Happy Friday to all!!
Hope you had a wonderful week
and you remember to play every once in a while
and just JUMP for JOY!

OH and… Well ~ I found out the hard way – don’t jump in your A-frame ceiling room.  It’s painful.  I had to share [this was the day before, my first attempt] :   See? Not a good idea, that would be my arm and head whacking into the ceiling in case you can’t tell.

Linking up with Click-It-Up a Notch ::  I learned that Manual Settings rock!  See the blur in my foot?  Even the Canon’s built in Sports mode couldn’t keep up.  Thank you so much Courtney for giving me the tips and push forward to switch to M and get the shots I want!

      Thank you Rita!!! This was seriously so much fun, and actually a pretty good workout, going through the 50 photos of me in mid jump or goofy face was HILARIOUS. Fletch was just shaking his head.

  3. I absolutely love how much control you had over the expression on your face! That first one is great… and yeah, I also found out that jumping indoors can be painful.

    And! I love that you cloned in all of your reflections too! :)

      Hehe, my Zumba instructor thinks I’m insane now ;) But I really did! It was amazing how much stress I let lose on this!

  9. These are so much fun, Jenny! I don’t think that I would have worked up the courage to take photos in a dance studio, so good for you! :)

  10. hehehe!! Good for you!! And yes, manual rocks for these!! :) Your shots are adorable. I’ve never been happy enough to even laugh at my jumping shots…

    And ouch! I used to live in an a-frame house… was always bumping my head… I never got used to the low ceilings.
