MORTAL JUMP

MORTAL JUMP

Kuang Si Waterfalls, Luang Prabang, Laos

THE STORY

One of the most beautiful (and touristic) places around Luang Prabang. I went there as to see why all tuk-tuk drivers in the city spend the day advertising daily trips to the tourists (I did it on a motorbike, though) and didn’t got disappointed. As a bonus, this kid kept on jumping in the water, so I could prepare a shot in advance.

THE TECHNIQUE

That meant pre-focusing on the trunk he was jumping from, set some margin for focusing error with an extended depth of field, and wait. No burst shots here, as its speed is not enough to cope with the movement.
