  • It's me Billy 7y

    Wow.........Aside from an excellent photo, that girl got some air!

    wow - wish i could do that! very dramatic shot!! one mild comment: the lighting makes it look a little artificial - is that she is in a studio and the sea is another pic. i can see from the next one along that this isn't true, but there is somehow a lot of "separation" between her and the background coming from the flash i guess.

    Totally awesome:)

    What'd ya do for the lights here, Laurie?

    Thanks everyone!

    Cappy5511 I just asked her to hold that position while I light painted her. Actually, it's just an SB600 on a stand camera left triggered by an SU800.

    Simon Burgess Simon, between the need to use flash and Briana's superhuman ability to leap, this wasn't going to look natural. So, I just pushed things in the opposite direction.

    Man, that girl can jump! Next time, get her up just a bit higher, above the horizon line. I'm having a hard time figuring out where you were shooting from--eye level or down low closer to the ground?

    Whaaah thats great! The processing does something strange to her skin, or is that just me?

  • lee snark 7y

    Very cool!
  • Brandi Hartman 7y

    This girl has one helluva C jump. Fantastic!

    great shot--though I'm afraid I find Briana just a little too "hot". (speaking of the strobe intensity--not her beauty of acrobatics). Wonderful work.

    Thanks for all the comments and feedback.

    21LTD Not exactly sure what you're seeing but because her skin was wet, there were some different looking highlights.

    B-Hart She does indeed.

    BuckarooBob Yep...it's a bit hot. It was a challenge knowing when she'd become airborne. I've processed this a few different ways. I have one processed more dramatically, actually with more contrast that I might prefer.

    Dang! You Florida folks simply rocked on the beach!
  • Just Chimpin' 7y
