Nice job! I would never have guessed that he was jumping. I thought you did it like scalvert's Light Reading, which this shot reminded me very much of:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/541/thumb/383052.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/541/thumb/383052.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I like his socks

For those of you who have asked how I did it...

used 3 strobes and took about 30 shots. was lucky to catch him in a position that appeared like he was not jumping up and down. pretty simple.

How many tries did it take to get him suspended without the hair flying everywhere?
02/13/2007 01:08:29 AM
Ha! Great timing. :)
02/12/2007 09:12:39 AM

Nicely done.
02/11/2007 07:44:35 AM
Sheesh the bedsprings must have taken a hammering in this. Very creative and a great image.
02/10/2007 11:32:36 PM
was this really basic editing material...or was it altered?
02/10/2007 04:16:01 PM
Nice shot. I am axious to see how you did it.
02/10/2007 03:16:39 PM
This is a fun shot, I have and idea of what was done but, the level of blending is really top notch!
02/10/2007 07:19:52 AM
like those pictures
02/09/2007 11:20:38 PM
Hilarious .. I'm not sure it embodies the theme of the contest, but it is a great shot nonetheless.
02/09/2007 10:58:08 PM
this is really cool, but the background is a bit too busy. how did you do this?
02/09/2007 07:49:48 PM
i want a trampoline in my room...
02/09/2007 07:41:47 PM
Haha! Good idea. :-)
02/09/2007 06:19:55 PM
don't know how many attempts you made at this, but a good result
02/08/2007 09:29:29 PM
Great magic trick - especially in basic editing, where you can't clone out wires etc. I know enlightenment is good; it's kind of an inslult to the viewer's intelligence to include the word good in the title.
02/08/2007 08:34:24 PM
huh, I don't see why this needed validation....I love it, good timing
02/08/2007 02:45:41 PM
I have no idea how did you do it and I hope you will show us details after the challenge :)

yes it is! Spectacular shot, 9
02/08/2007 08:38:05 AM
I am not sure that this image is legal. if it's legal 6 for the photo + 2 for the fly effect. 8
02/08/2007 08:20:54 AM
wow! how'd u do that?
02/07/2007 11:09:23 PM
Impressive concept. I wonder how you managed it in basic editing.
02/07/2007 11:02:45 PM
hahahahhaa it's the coffee
02/07/2007 09:29:10 PM
Really nice setting. Can't wait to see how it was done.
02/07/2007 07:41:40 PM
Very nicely executed! I'll be surprised if this isn't in the top 3.
02/07/2007 07:21:29 PM
Very interesting .
02/07/2007 04:45:34 PM
Ok. . .HOW did you do that in basic editing! Amazing! If nothing else it is EXCELLENTLY GOOD photography :)
02/07/2007 03:41:03 PM
perfection! there's little else i could say...this is a total winner! 10
02/07/2007 12:56:27 PM
Very cool editing
02/07/2007 12:22:56 PM
Well, this couldn't have been easy!
02/07/2007 10:25:54 AM
very fun
02/07/2007 10:21:32 AM
I can't wait to find out how you did this in basic editing, great job!! Lighting could have been a bit better, perhaps less from the right and a bit more fill on the left, or very strong from the left, simulating an open window, and no light at all from the right. Also, it looks too cool, I would suggest playing with white balance a little. All and all, well executed
02/07/2007 09:50:20 AM
Neat. I bet you took a lot of shots to get this one down. Good luck.
02/07/2007 09:49:19 AM
good creativity
02/07/2007 09:04:35 AM
Well done! Looking forward to how you pulled this off! Glad my son is not participating on DPC!
