Lauren in LA

Newer Older

#364/365 How cool is this shot! This photo is dedicated to all the 2009 365'ers! Congratulations...what a ride!

One of my favorite 365 project this year is from the awesome Lauren (aka Laurenlemon). Earlier this year Lauren moved down to LA, so it was only time till we ran into each other. For those who are familiar with her work you know she is a Jumpologist. So what better way to portray her than jumping in the middle of a huge street in the middle of downtown Los Angeles.

So the setup for this shot was so fun. I mounted a sb-800 on a monopod with a 43" shoot thru umbrella. We stood on the side of the road. When all was clear we ran into the middle. I assumed the drop knee position holding the monopod in one hand and the camera in the other. The flash was on full power so we had to time the jumps so the flash could recycle. In all did 2 trips into onto the street about 4 shots each trip. We got extremely lucky as there was no cars at the light! Overall it was a blast and I got a bunch of great shots of her jumping which I will post once this 365 is over.

There is a rumor floating about that there is a shot of me jumping as well...I deny everything.

You'd better view this large!

    You should add this photo to our groups portrait of the month thread, unless you have a better image for the game than this one (;

    Take a chance, put your image on the line, as well as the fact this game should be an interesting way to learn something new about photography styles and technique.

    Here is the link. Good luck see you around (;
