mrs, i'm no tigger, but i was able to dunk a basketball (when i was considerably lighter), which for my height is no mean feat... :D

nige says:

thanks guys.

gael, i'll let you have the old jump shots :) i hope the trampoline ones are on there..!

'rose, you wanna know the tech-tech-technical information?
*drags pic onto desktop. right click. looks at properties*

18mm, f/3.5, 1/60sec

basically i just used the fastest shutter speed i could with this, and i used the remote control with the 2 second timer. i did quite a few tests to get the timing right - then i just kept jumping for about an hour until i got what i wanted. my fave is the bomb...
you're right though - its all about timing...

swamprose says:

thanks nige.
got it.

can I just say again and again, as far as jumping goes, there is no deadline for me.

I am waiting for the perfect snow. It might not happen until February...

nige says:

hey, there's no deadline for me either. i'll never stop jumping for joy, even though this little moblog shenanigan will end on sunday. come monday, i'll be jumping and i'll be shooting, but i just won't be posting...for a while, anyway :)

my knees are shaking too! i tell you what, try an hour of "catching the jump" and see how your gut feels the next day. tight!

thanks Maggie! looking forward to yours... perhaps a drawing if you can't face the frustration of the timing...hehe.
