II — Goodbye Gravity

Pro Tip: See this shot on my flickr here and follow me on twitter or facebook for more updates.

Making people defy gravity is so much fun I wanted to try it out on myself. Had to act fast with this one, after trekking to the location the sun started to fade fast, I bunged a couple of flashes in a single softbox got the ambient light balanced and then I just started to… float.
