V — Goodbye Gravity

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

“It’d be pretty cool to throw someone off a building”, I thought to myself last week… I just needed to find a friend stupid fearless enough to let me do it. Sam stepped up to the plate (possibly a little unsure of what I was actually asking him to do) & did an awesome job! Lighting wise I ended up going a completely different way to my orignal plan, I must have gone though about 4 different setups before simplifying it right down to this setup. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out & I’d love to hear your thoughts on it too.
