Split ~ Explored

    Newer Older

    Seems somewhat like a plum splitting open. Nice 'wave' of water as the tear has cut across the balloon.

    From my third shoot with my new digital sound trigger. Playing with lighting and composition a bit more.

    Strobist: SB600 on camera right, on 1/64th power. Retouching in Aperture and Photoshop, colour correction.

      Mind boggling and shattering - cuts through my preconceived thoughts about what it would look like.

      This is by far the best high speed balloon pop yet! Very beautiful & cool. Definitely my new fav! Like others have said, it does look like a plum splitting.

      What? Water pressure? From a balloon? Not. Liquids are not easily compressible. What you see is the effect of the rubber balloon pulling away at a great rate causing water perturbations associated with surface tension.

    14. Edward Horsford 41 months ago | reply

      Agreed. The amount of spray is also directly related to the volume of water as this changes the surface tension in the rubber, and hence the speed at which it retracts.

      Some balloons also fracture quite differently, which will lead to different spray patterns.
