Alison – “I’m Flying!”

This was taken at the breakwater in Victoria, BC. The idea was Alison’s, but she wanted to take a photo of me doing the pose. I vetoed that idea and told her that she would have to do the pose. Mostly because I have only seen the movie once, and it’s kind of a chick flick anyway. So this is Alison doing the “Jack, I’m Flying!” pose.

This is actually a combination of Alison standing very still while I took three exposures of her. I combined them into HDR using Photomatix Pro. Final detailing was done with Lightroom.

Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at Pixelbip.com and writing about my experiences at EarthToKeir.com
