    Bursting balloons , and reflections !

    Since the days are getting shorter again , and it is dark by 6:30 pm , I dug out the sound activated flash trigger and set up my mini-studio outside , checked there were no cows in the field and loaded the air rifle ... this time I added a mirror for a different perspective ... you can actually see the pellet leaving the back of the balloon in both images .



    I still have a few pictures to sort through ...

    I decided that the mic was too far away since the balloon was too far gone when the flash wired so I moved it about a foot closer .



    The interesting thing is that the small change in distance meant that I only had a picture of a balloon with a hole in it , before it had exploded .



    Another 6 inches further and it was right .





    This one was strange - the front just had a hole in it but the back had time to start splitting !

    And the last of tonight's attempts



    The other day I saw some different shaped balloons and knew they would make things a bit more interesting .





    Then I tied one long balloon on top of a normal one ...



    Maybe it is time to start filling them with water again

    Wet suit first I think!
    Love the green one with the hole in the front and split at the back.
    Took me a bit to get used to the angle of the mirror in relation to the actual balloon.
    Keep at it!

    When I fill them with water I have to put plastic bags over the flash heads as well
