Fantasy Football players, they fly through the air with the greatest of ease. For an editorial profile story in the Fall 2007 issue of AZ Teen Magazine.

Football players: Dion Jordan, Chandler High School '08 and Covaughn DeBoskie, Chandler Hamilton High School '08. Friends from opposing high school football teams in AZ.

Lighting: 5 Dyna-lite strobes to light this shot. We had them jumping from trampolines to launch themselves in the air, and they landed on a large padded mat (which still was a bit rough to land on multiple times). Thanks to Dion and Covaughn for making this shot work.

Photoshop: This is the version that is closer in my mind to the shot that I wanted to make. I shot the background (the sky) earlier while we were setting up the lighting, so to do the Photoshop work, I imported the sky as a background layer, added a layer mask, then erased all the black around the subjects. Last step was adding the motion blur, because they are in motion.
