This shot was the culmination of over a month of planning and prep. This is a true silhouette, no photoshop involved. I built a frame from pvc piping and attached a king size white bed sheet to the frame. Behind the sheet I placed an Alienbees B1600 at full power to allow the shortest flash duration. All the lights in Wash High gym were killed so stopping down below ambient was as easy as possible. From there it was just a matter of positioning the whole thing correctly and getting the timing right.
