    Just made a new thingy

    Just finished making a new thingy to take photos of water balloons etc.
    The steel bracket on the left i can mount a air assisted pellet ejector to shoot balloons eggs etc.
    The front side is black and the back side is white, and everything can be transferred to the other side to have a white back ground.
    I have a Catcus laser trigger which fires the 3 flashes mounted on the Catcus transcivers.
    The flat board hanging on the white side can be unhooked and hooked on the black side.
    You can see the steel spike which is in line with the laser trigger and when the balloon hits the spike it will cut the laser and trigger the 3 flashes.

    Damm one came out on its side, can anyone fix it for me.
    Thank you whoever fixed it.

    I've got no idea what your going on about. I'd like to see some water balloons.

    Quite a good set up for taking pictures of water balloons and other high speed shooting applications. Has a nice, professional look as well.

    My 12 13 year old Daughter may be able to do everything via touch screen on the D5500, but at least there is still a button to press to take the photo, so I feel confident...

    This looks interesting. I can not quite understand all of it. Is the timing of the three slave flashes sequential?
    Look forward to seeing the results. Where would I look? Not still life, sounds more like sport to me.

    Marty the 3 flashes sit on Cactus receivers and the Cactus laser triggers the 3 together wirelessly, also I have a 4th transmitter so I can trigger them manually.
    I then have a Yongnuo transmitter so I can remotely adjust each flash output independently.

    I'm finding working for a living is interfering with my photography life, but if I can hold out for another 238 days i'll have all the time I need.
