Orange Pop

At first, I was a bit worried about the dirtiness of the balloon, but I like the specs that are flying off of it as the pop happened - they give a three-dimensional picture of the "before".


Lighting details: 55mm f/4 @ 2 seconds, sound-triggered 285HV off-camera left, thyristor set to the "yellow" mode (most sensitive). I intended to use a faster flash time, but the 285HV's 1/16 manual setting is too slow and my attempts to shorten the pulse failed (I didn't know at the time that I need to short out pins 2 and 4 to enable the hotshoe; I already know about resistance across pins 1 and 2)
