This is one of the two pics that I intend to upload for today. This is my JUMP attempt. I know the background ain't great but was the only place in the park where I found something to JUMP OFF hehe.

My learning from this shot: DAMN SHUTTER LAG!!! Also, the time of the day wasn't great as the shadows are really annoying, but there was no choice on that.

Perhaps a shallower DOF would have blurred the background a bit. I do like that you managed to stay in the frame while jumping. Wonder how many times you tried it :)

From your description, you know the things to look for, and you went for it despite not finding those things (better light, less clutter, etc). I like that. We don't always have the perfect time or the perfect background - sometimes you just have to take the shot anyway!

You look like Powers Booth here!!! I have issues with shutter lag too, or I have it on th self timer and run or jump before of after. LOL That's called photog error. ;~D

Good strong jump. You're right about the background. Two possiblilities: 1) Use your DOF to blur out the background. 2)Take the shot from another angle to provide a better background, ie: camera on the ground looking to the sky, camera on the side/back of you, etc.

Moving the camera to a different angle may also help get the shadows where you want them - it won't make them softer though.

Tomorrow, I'd like to see a smile. ;-)

Hahahaha....you should try some portraits where you aren't necessarily looking into the camera...it helps you relax a bit and you can start to let your hair down...hehehehe!!

Splat.

He was such a good guy...but should have stayed away from heights. ;)

As for the photo. I think you've done a good job making the leap seem believable. Not easy to time things like this. The shadows are not distracting to me, but the building is a bit "busy". I know it was the only one available, but I think a windowless wall would have made a cleaner image. Still, it's done well. Your expression looks like it was an intense effort.

Thanks for the comments :) I jumped from a rock LOL I am quite sore for a reason hahaha

That looks kinda high. Is that from the angle, a trampoline or are you just a really good jumper? either way cool shot. nice job.

Thanks Mike,

Yes, after uploading my moody pic yesterday I received an email that cheered me up a bit. Part of the problem solved!! one step at a time LOL

Not a bad pic. You don't blend into the background at all. Colors are good. And you seem to be in a better mood.

Having done a "jump" shot myself before I got a remote, I know exactly what you mean about it being difficult. I had to "time" mine and hope I got it right - run back and check - then run back and count and jump again - ha... I agree that the background is a bit distracting, but otherwise nice job.
