...or actually the number100.

Anyone had experience of setting something like this up?

I will be on a roof top (flat I hope) shooting down onto group. Not sure yet how many people. I know i will need to mark it out but if anyone has some ideas i'd like to hear them. Am goingto recce venue on Thursday.

Just lay out a trail of pound coins in the shape of '100'. It works for pigeons! (bread, not pound coins).

In all seriousness, you could estimate the shape with chalk or something.

Good luck with your venture!

hi - this is something I do - see my site [Link Removed by EPZ- Against site T&C's - Sorry] -1st page with the pic of the pink ribbon

not suggesting that you use my service but my advice would be to photo the area with no one in it - then in photoshop or similar draw your shape on a layer and then print out the result. Before you take the shot simply get some helpers to stand at the corners of the shape(s) corresponding to your print and the rest of the people stand in between - job done

sounds simple but working with kids it takes 40 mins to set up and 2 mins to photograph - then they get bored and walk away - good luck

Thanks Nick, that did occur to me. As your link has been removed could you pm me with the site address.
