This image was created in the fraction of a second but took a while to prepare and get right. I set up 2 flash guns on a stand further up the tunnel fitting a blue gel to one flash and an orange to the other. Andy then vaped the smoke to provide the atmosphere for the shot. All it required then was to open the shutter and for me to leap into the air in pitch darkness and fire the flashguns with the remote trigger in my hand, job done.
It took quite a few attempts to get the positioning of the jump just right so the flash didn't fire directly into the lens and blow out the exposure so I was delighted to finally get a shot that worked exactly to plan. Straight out of camera shot done in one exposure.(Olympus EM-1 mk2 7-14mm f/2.8 pro 5secs f/6.3 @ 12mm)
