    Great shot! I am kind of late to the thread, but i've read through the comments and haven't seen anything on the topic, so with that said: i don't know what kind of triggering circuit your using but if it's microcontroller based it would only take one line of code to shut the laser off before the picture is taken. If your circuit is transistor based (which it likely is) then it might be a bit trickier but i know that i've seen ways of doing it out there somewhere, it might only take a single NOT gate. Just a thought...

    Mr Lolocaust, yeah its microcontroller based. Runs on an MSP430 which controls power to the laser through a pass FET transistor.

    Though the problem has been overcome by using an IR laser which the camera cannot see :)

    EGGscellent! The splashing of the gooey insides is almost tangible!

    Stehanie, this is how he did it (for your convenience I'll provide you with the EXIF link, in case you don't know where to look for it):
