Photographer Captures Her Flying Baby
New York-based photographer Rachel Hulin has captured her infant son Henry ‘flying’ in a project titled ‘The Flying Series’.
“I never throw him, and I never move him into a place in the frame that he wasn’t in to begin with,“ Hulin told TIME of Henry’s unusual body positions.
“I like Henry to fly the way he feels like it, I never pose him in a specific way. Sometimes he’s graceful and sometimes he’s a little hunchback. I think telling you more would ruin it.”
Hulin has chosen not to divulge on her technique, which she says is “more subtraction than addition”.
However, in a recent interview with My Modern Metropolis, Hulin revealed that “it's really quite straightforward”.
“I'm not sure if telling you exactly makes it less magical, but yes, Photoshop is involved, but only slightly. He never gets tossed. The frame you see is very close to the original picture, Henry just has no assistance in the final shot,” she added.
