      Hi there -

      For the photos themselves, all you need to do is to compose your frame (using a tripod might be useful), get them to do a trick, and then hold the shutter button pushed.

      The rest is done in photoshop - in this case, because I used manual focus, white balance and exposure, it turned out to be very easy, I just layered the 3 images on top of each other, then cut off the bit which covered the skateboarder below. A little bit of blurring of the edges between the photos, and voila!

      I'll try and do a fuller, step-by-step explanation on my Photocritic.org blog as soon as I have the chance. Stay tuned!
