Extreme Sports, May 2010.

This is a memorable one because I fell down considerably hard on that rough road with camera on hand while trying to demonstrate to the model how, when and at which point she should jump in this pose. It was mid-day - I was wearing dark shades with camera on-hand. So when I jumped, I misjudged my fall and to protect my camera, I suffered a few scratches, wounds and bruises on my right hand and left knee. On her part, she did ran and jumped quite a number of times never quitting until we perfected this shot.

This is not a composite. Her, being on air and the shadow below here are both real.
