Jump over Lyon by nikonforever Jump over Lyon by nikonforever
An other aspect of my work..
Extreme sports
Made for a client ... (Accounting company)
NO PHOTOSHOP !!! Real shot ... on Fuji Film
Two cameras ( Nikon F3) with 16 and 15 mm lenses,
attached outside of an Helicopter
One in my hands (an other Nikon F3 with an other 15 mm)
Three cameras did shoot together when I trigger the one I had in hands (all wired together ...)
All set on about 5 fps..., focusing ring taped to infinity, f stop taped to f 11 at 1/250 of a s
ONE shot only was good .. (16 mm on one of the outside cameras)
The others were slightly blurred from the vibrations, or not interesting in framing
(see an other one here[link] )
Two months to get the Official YES from the local Air Police and State department ...

5 minutes of intense pleasure over Lyon ( my city in france)
YES ... the Guy (professional ...) had a parachute, but it is hidden behind the suit ,
and he did not loose the suitcase during the jump....
just damaged his hand a little bit from holding it ...

I forgot to add...
I was INSIDE the Helicopter, but with no door ...
and shooting from slightly above, so,
it is why the best shot (from angle speaking)
was from one of the cameras outside.

My friend DOM (the skydiver) just add some comments ...
please enjoy them:

Thank You to everybody for your great comments !!!!
Yes I am the skydiver on the picture
Yes I am alive today
Yes I have a custom made parachute under the suit
Yes I am able to skydive without goggle, ears protect, helmet because in these marvellous years we were FREE !!!!!!!!!!!!!
By the way, with my partner Jean-Pascal we have created the SKYSURF.

Thank you to my best friend Tery for terrific moments we have enjoyed together.

waah! accélère! il est derrière nous !!!


faire du parachute avec un casque... moi aussi je crois pas que ca soit aussi utile qu'un siège éjectable sue un hélico, à cette altitude c'est pas comme si porter un casque te sauverait la vie. si ton parachute déconne, après; t'est une pizza.

nice shot and Idea, but I didn't see the logic. Why you need to do it in a real one and risk everything in photoshop for a much better result?

Come ON

Have you read how it was done ???
Nikon F3 , with film
It was 1991 ...
Digital was not born ... and Photoshop was "barely" starting...
We had no choice .. real or nothing...
added to that the difficulty was real...

yeah man it seems like it would be very stressful to get the coordination and planning executed for this properly not to mention the kinda hit or miss of grabbin' the best pose for a person to be able to do it in mid air.

Although its cool to see the results and i very much appreciate that i got to see a bad ass photo like this one man.

You rock! new fan +
