    I really wanted to film Soleil doing this just to prove that this is not a trick shot.

    This involves doing a double roll to the side to build up momentum and then pushing off with hands and feet. Yes she is over two feet in the air and the noise when she landed on the sprung floor was just horrific, yet Soleil happily did this about six or seven times so I could get the shot. If I hadn't seen it I probably wouldn't have believed it myself.

    Lighting info: Two Elinchrom heads, one pointing at Soleil's feet and the other at her head both with 80cm softboxes. 580EX II behind and to the left to add a couple of highlight to the top of the body and separate from the dark background. All triggered with RF-602 wireless triggers.

    Rangefindergeneral, Gooty, Rob Kater, and 66 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Assuming I have set this up correctly you should be able to see the out-takes below. These shots are the ones where I mistimed the exposure.

      Proof of concept
