• Camera was here
  • A nice large wok used to catch most of the water
  • A bottle of Coke Zero, used it to pour all the water
  • Glass rose would have been hanging here upside down. It was glued on with a hot glue gun, pretty scared that the glue wouldn't hold up and it would fall into the wok...
  • My small old monopod! Wrapped in bungie cords to hold it to my light stands.
  • Nikon SB-800 bare, camera left firing at 1/64 power
  • Nikon SB-800 bare, camera right, on the ground pointing up, firing at 1/64 power
    It had a ziplock bag on it just so it would get soaked
  • Nikon SB-80dx bare, camera right aimed at the white blackground firing at 1/64 power
  • The background! Its just a large white card, it wasn't actually this white in the final photo because I adjusted my exposure for this set up shot.
  • Like I said, there was a large garbage bag here covering most of the floor but I got rid of it before I took this shot.

A pretty simple set up. Sadly I almost forgot to take a set up photo and started tearing down, so the glass rose isn't in the photo and there was a large garbage bag on the floor just so the mess wouldn't go everywhere and stain the carpets.

    I use radio triggers, any trigger like Pocket Wizards, Cactus, CyberSyncs, will work I use the RadioPopper JrX to be specific, to trigger my flashes. To use it on a Sony/Minolta body you need to buy and adapter so you can mount the triggers on the camera because of the Sony/Minolta proprietory flash mount.
