Sackboy: The Perils of Planking

Yep, it seems Sackboy is as dumb as the next Planker on the Internet. Planking is a craze that's taking hold on the Internet. It involves a prson lying flat on their belly, often in a very precarious place, whilst someone else takes a photo of them. Planking is dangerous, balcony planking can be deadly. Sackboy thought he'd try planking on the balcony of a nearby pub (bar)' he Geebung Polo Club. Needless to say, he over balanced and he's dead now. This is sad as I won't be able to take any more photos of him.

 

If you're thinking of Planking, anywhere or on anything, don't, it's dangerous and a very dumb idea.

Strobist:

4 Canon 580EXII's triggered by PocketWizard II's.

The flashes were all at varying power settings (all on manual by the way), one with a very small home made softbox, one with a bought softbox, and two rim lights laying flat on the floor pointing upwards.

The rim on the left was fired bare with a quarter CTO, the one on the right with a quarter CTO, a single sheet of red cellophane and a grid.

Sackboy was laying flat on a couple of wires suspended by my trusty soldering station jig.

 

Background is a HDR Image of the Geebung Polo Club.

Sackboy imag was composited over the top of the background in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
