Jason Paul, a free runner from Germany was in Sarajevo for two days to film a short movie for Red Bull. I was called to be part of the production team as a stills photographer providing pictures for Red Bull Content Pool. The idea for the movie and pictures was to shoot Jason on the roofs of Sarajevo, and to emphasize the multi religion aspect of the city.
The weather was not on our side and for the whole two days it was raining. The roofs were very slippery for Jason to perform. On the last day of shooting the amount of rain had decreased and for half an hour the rain stopped and the roofs had partially dried. Jason decided to jump between a four-story-building in the centre of Sarajevo.
For the whole time my goal was capture a good sequence of Jason's jump. I wanted to freeze him in action, and to see his graciousness in every part of his performance. I also wanted to capture the church towers and mosque minarets in the picture. So I used 16-35 lens at 16mm on full frame body on Nikon D800 at 1/1000sec to freeze Jason in air. I have used f-stop f5 and ISO 800 since it was very dark and cloudy day.
