jump composite breakdown

jump composite breakdown

I did this shot last year, and I'm often asked how these guys were able to jump so high. This is actually a composite of 3 different shots, and some messing around in Photoshop.
I work up there in that room top right. I had the shots downloaded and the final comp finished by the time the guys got upstairs thanks to a little pre-planning.
Shadows are always the dealbreaker with composites.
I couldn't do this on a sunny day as the light would have moved too much. The lighting had to be very simple so I didn't make life difficult for myself later on.
