    cool if you are the rider, otherwise it is pretty boring.

    Pretty cool. Reminds me of the skater magazines I used to look through.

    Not a fan :hs: Its not that its bad, its just that its nothing special. I think its a lot like selective coloring. When you first see it, you think its awesome. Then you see it again and again, and it gets kinda played out.

    Cool!

    Might be even more cool to have them 50% transparent (except the first and last).

    What camera are shooting this with and how are you stitching this together? Just always been curious about these kind of shots!

    I agree, but now I know I can throw one of these together in 3o minutes, so that works for when I want to do it again with someone doing a big backflip trick.

    Thanks

    Yeah, totally. I want to do a frame by frame page like they do in the mags. :bigthumb:

    Thanks. I shot as fast as my camera would go, but I only sed like every third shot. If I used every shot, the whole thing would be overlapping.

    Thanks man

    Like I said before, it was a test. I think people who ride like it more than people who aren't into the sport. The picture doesnt do the jump justice. It was fucking huge!

    I tried something like that, and it looked kinda :hsugh:

    I could say that about every picture I've ever seen in here :mamoru: But thanks

    Shot with a 1DIIN 17-40L wide open and over 1/1000? :dunno: something like that.

    I just take every shot that I took during the jump, dragged them into PS, and started with the first shot, then layered every shot that went next at like 45% opacity. Line everything up, mask out the background, leave the ride, and start tweaking it until it looks right.

    A lot of people like these two I did. :dunno:

    very cool... so I guess you're on a tripod, continuous from start to finish on the jump, right?

    Handheld. I never bring a tripod to a MX shoot. I can keep it pretty damn steady while the rider is in the air.
