If you love those photographers who will “do anything for the shot,” then you’re really going to enjoy Japanese photographer snowfairy88. When he needs to make a splash with one of his portraits, he goes all in… literally.
The photographer posted a series of photos on Twitter showing how he did a full-fledged belly flop to create a big splash for one of his portraits. The tweet has been liked and retweeted thousands of times—apparently people found this “technique” quite inspirational:
