Bike Launch!

I saw this old picture from the 80's of a kid on a big wheel launching off a home made ramp! I know when I was a kid it seemed as if the world was much safer, and not in a violent way, but in a get hurt less from doing stupid things way. I wanted to try and see if I could recreate this with my son and his big wheel (or the poor excuse modern day equivalent of one) and see if I could spark that same feeling! I hope one day my son will look back on this image and tell everyone how safe the world used to be and brag about all the crazy things he did when he was 3! 

Here are the images I took to create this effect. It is important to use a tripod, and capture a background image. You do not want to spend the time recreating a picket fence! The background image will cut your post time drastically! Enjoy and let me know what you think down in the comments section! ~Rich
