084/365 Fun Experiment V.1

Tonight was a fun experiment with my kids that actually ended a little sad. Basically, I had the kids run around with sparklers and when the sparklers died out I would trigger my strobes. This was the first shot and also the last. My little daughter Madison got a little burn on her finger and a car proceeded to come down the road so I broke all my equipment down and called it a night. So, no setup shot :( My wife held down the shutter on my remote control and I tripped the flashes with my transmitter in my hand. V1 means version 1 and I will try this again with more time to test and hopefully no injuries to small children.
