This lady was crazy. The tandem master had less than a hundred jumps at the time, and spent the entire skydive moving from fetal/touching her toes to going back belly to going back fetal. The poor TM could never get a hold of her feet because she was so violently transitioning back and forth.

I was just happy he got the drogue out! When I flew up to them I just gave him the pull signal - "save yourself!"

When we got down - the student's comment - "Well, this sport isn't for me..."

I don't get to play in the contest, but this guy was one of my more memorable tandems. No shit, there I was, I could hear him screaming in the door.

He didn't uncover his eyes for at least 10 seconds.

Are you shooting vertical for tandems or is that cropped? I'm thinking about setting my helmet up for both next year.

Re: [gearless_chris] CONTEST! ~Funny tandem photo [In reply to] Can't Post

I shoot vertical/portrait for tandems. My RRS mount can go either way, however. I like vert, because it allows me more angle control for when I want to tilt my head sideways for a horizontal shot and all angles in between. I know some folks really don't like vert, but for tandems, it works well.
Funny story, I used to shoot with my stills upside down on the front of my FTP. Had two customers two years ago call to complain that photos were "upside down."Laugh DZO told em' to flip their printer over.

Yes, I got it back 99% of the time. I used to have them do it a lot. I've done it at least 100 times... I always had really worn out shoes, so wasn't too worried about it. Notice the hole in my toe of the previous photo. But then I lost one, then another one, and I was done with that game. Not to mention, landing downwind in the dirt, on a 78 with my camera helmet and a weight belt, one time made me realize it'd be nice to have both shoes. I never was very good at slalom skiing.

Sometimes the instructor would grab me and take it while the student was oblivious. That was pretty funny. He'd hand it to the student after opening, saying, "Here hold this."

Re: [SStewart] CONTEST! ~Funny tandem photo [In reply to] Can't Post

When goggles fly up, I don't think that's funny at all... It's a pet peeve of mine when TMs fail to tighten the goggles properly (seems to be the same TMs a lot, and seems to happen with the goggles with 'soft edges' the most) it can totally ruin a passenger's jump. While this girl didn't seem to have much trouble with it, I've videod a few people who were fighting to SEE during the entire freefall. Looks crappy on video and shows bad form IMO. Never mind should you have a passenger with contacts or lasered eyes, or in winter cold or rain/ice in the air.

If a passenger complains about goggles being too tight, explain that they SHOULD be tight!

I just take pictures too, but I will tell/signal the TM if I see the goggles not being tight enough in the plane (not often easy to spot though), and definitely tell him after the jump. I think the well-being of the passenger I film, insofar as I can do something about it, IS part of my job as a vidiot.

Also have to watch for the ends of the goggle straps not getting tucked in good after they're tightened. The belly band sometimes gets too tight after they tighten the lowers, I don't like to wait for them to finish throwing up so I can talk to them after landing.

1. He looks relaxed enough.
2. At least he went for his own nose.
3. What's going on up there??
4. The TI's wife came along... and flew in to give a kiss... to the wrong guy.

Ok these are cheating a little because the student is an exprienced jumper getting the TI current. But it was the funniest tandem I've photographed (although I only did one paid tandem video in 2009).

I thought this one was kinda funny... just the difference in expressions between the TI and the student.

The Wallace and Gromit face still makes me laugh...

She did actually untie my shoelaces before taking my shoe off. I guess I should have told her just to pull it off. I was laughing in freefall while she was untying it.

There's a whole series of butt-grab shots from that exit...

Re: [dragon2] CONTEST! ~Funny tandem photo [In reply to] Can't Post

I agree with you about letting the TI know if the goggles are too loose.

It does ruin the skydive for the student but because the TIs never see the face of the passenger they don't realize how bad it is.

And it is often the same TIs.

A couple of years ago I had one TI that did it about 40% of the time and I tactfully mentioned it to him (in private) and he told me to "just shoot the video".

After that I brought about a dozen 5x7s of the worst ones to the DZ and left them laying around the tandem area.

I believe he was a bit embarrased but he didn't say anything to me.

His goggles have been tight ever since.

Maybe you should do it again. Should be a bunch of hand cam entries these days. I'm trying to work into my routine under canopy to do a funny face with the student at the camera. I haven't quite decided if I'm going to participate, making a face as well, they can't see me. Might be more funny if played as a little trick on the student.

that harness looks perfectly fine, since the leg strapps were moved lower on the thigh to facilitate a seated position under canopy. Much more comfortable then hanging vertical, and easier for most to raise their legs for landing.

The loosened up chest strap in the pick is actually anchored below the shoulders and is loosely flapping about the neck, more than likely cause by the Student sinking a bit in the landing.

The T-I looks to have placed his legs ion such a way as to pitch the student forward a bit (feet first, not head first), adding to the appearance of a miss adjusted Student Harness.
