The classic

    Prev Next

    A good improvement from my first shoot I think. Better lighting, composition, etc, etc. I'm not 100% about the background, but it's different from so many of the other high-speed water balloons on flickr.

    From my second shoot with my new digital sound trigger. A bit more thought to composition and lighting this time round.

    Strobist: SB800 on camera left, SB600 behind subject with plexiglass diffusor. Flashes on 1/64th power.

      I'd recommend the Camera Axe which is both one of the cheaper options and one of the most flexible. Otherwise if you have the electronics skills, have a go at making one yourself like I did. Check out the high speed photography group for lots of people working with a whole range of kit.

      The speed is set by the flash duration, which is at 1/64th power. I can't tell you how long that actually is.

      Nikon D200, but the camera is the least important part of the shot. A point and shoot could be used with these.
