Well, this might be a touch too cold to do right now, but in my studio lighting class students had an extra credit option to photograph a water balloon mid-explosion (I’ll be posting more examples from studio lighting soon!)…and one of my students went hi-tech, so I decided to give him a shot as a guest writer! Try this one on for size:
If you want to know how he set it up with a sound trigger, check out his instructions!
What you need:
Camera, pellet/airsoft gun, balloons, support for the water balloons, tripod and a sound trap trigger.
Most of these are pretty east to get a hold of or borrow, but the microphone based shutter release is a bit harder. I am fortunate enough to have a very cool home made tool for a nintendo DS that links my camera to it via a really long 3pin DIN…
