I've been asked a few times about this shot since it was posted as a pre-release promo for Skarlett announcing their music video "Doesn't Matter Anyway". I thought I'd include a little breakdown of the shot just to answer some of the questions I have been getting.

The photo itself is quite a simple 5 picture composite that was broken down into a photo of the alley by itself clear of any equipment to use as the major shot then four separate shots of the boys jumping so we could set up individual back lighting to let them stand out from the dark moody background.

Perhaps the most important note is that the camera needs to be tripod mounted and then once your composition and settings are correct it SHOULDN'T BE MOVED.  This is so the shot does not change apart from the equipment and subject, that way it is quite easy to mask out everything except the person jumping and have it already correctly positioned against the background. Any resulting shadows can then easily be merged together so the light positioning looks natural to the human eye.


Post processing included a few curve corrections to match the individual shots to the background (being a slightly cloudy day there were slight variations in ambient light as clouds passed in front of the sun) and lots of good old dodging and burning (gotta love that stuff for the poster look).

Equipment used 

Canon 5D MKIII
Lens: Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM
