    How do you take a photo like this...

    That'd be done with a burst mode (multiple exposures), and then complied in PS or other software.

    AFF fear or anxiety

    Totally normal. EVERYONE I've spoken to has been fearful. I'd also done tandem, bungys, etc. IMO. It takes balls to do a full AFF, it won't be easy at times, you'll probably wonder what you're doing it for, you may consider coming back down in the plane, you'll be secretly glad when the weather stops you going up. The fear won't suddenly disappear after the first AFF jump either (I assumed 2nd jump onwards would be easy). Before you know if you'll be jumping with one instructor, then solo, then doing unstable stuff, then hop & pop. Each time you'll be pushed psychologically. It does slowly change to excitement though. I'm getting there after 15 jumps, though there is still some fear. To me this is part of the personal challenge, and just needs grit to get through. And, of course it's all worth it....
