Champion yo-yo master Jensen Kimmitt has returned to Edmonton after winning major the Clash 44 yo-yo competition in Japan. His Japanese fans have given him the nickname Hopusan, in admiration for his gravity-defying string “hop” tricks. He poses for a photo in downtown Edmonton on September 23, 2009.  Photo by Ryan Jackson / Edmonton Journal

img_2543 To make this photo I went up to the top level of a parkade down town.

I used my DIY ring-flash with two Canon 550EX’s at full-power. I then placed a

580EX off to the side at full-power. I used the ring flash because I wanted the

light to be even and also for the colors to POP! Jensen was very cooperative.

It took forever to reset the yoyos after each jump because they would get tangled

so we only did three tries. Photo by Jen Fong / Edmonton Journal
