www.diyphotography.net/creating-the-splash We used a photocell trigger with an interrupted laser beam and an adjustable delay unit, constructed by myself, and a ramp and skateboard (with interchangeable decks for ease of changing the glasses) precision-engineered by Mark (mkratty). Paul (Moose_Malloy) suggested the idea and supervised the lighting :-) It's great when a plan comes together!
Strobist info: three flash units, all at 1/32 power, aimed at a white background (bed sheet), fired by radio triggers connected to the photocell trigger. One central under the table, and one each at camera left and right slightly above the subject and snooted.
