Ok Jump Fans, You Asked For It!

I’m just amazed how many emails I receive asking where were the jump photos of Stephanie from our MI DLWS event. We actually did just one set up which you see here. It was our normal FP flash with a shutter speed of 1/6000 and single SB-900 flash zoomed to 200mm.

This movie requires Flash Player 9

We had a number of technical issues this time which prevented us from doing what we first set out to do. The biggest one being Stephanie strained her back a couple of days earlier (all that work her mean bossman piles on her). Next we couldn’t get the height from the get go for Stephanie to leap from, we did have her on the hood of a car at one point. Lastly, we simply didn’t have the time. So it all added up to just a couple of leaps and we called it a wrap. While Stephanie wasn’t further injured by her couple of leaps, I have to report that sadly, a pair of pants died in the production of this shot.
