More Pop

Playing with balloons again this evening - I only had six, but I'm reasonably satisfied with the results.  This time I was able to use two Nikon SB-26 strobes at 1/64th power to give better lighting. The flashes are triggered by sound - you can see the microphone clipped to the clamp that holds the balloons.

The mic is very sensitive indeed - in this one, the flashes were triggered by the sound of the pin making contact with the balloon, before it burst. You can see the depression where the point of the pin is about to enter the balloon.

Here, it looks like I'm about to be devoured by a purple Pacman, but I actually won this round :)
