Datura Seedpod vs Water
Lens: DFA100mm Camera: k5iis Photo Location: Basement ISO: 140 Shutter Speed: 1s Aperture: F13.5 
Posted By: BrianR, 10-27-2017, 08:19 PM

I picked up a Miops Nero Trigger (the last generation model was on sale). So of course stuff is going to get dropped in the water using the laser trigger to help time the flash. I need to rig up a more solid setup to hold all the equipment in place (rubber bands should not be involved in precisely aiming a laser), but overall it was pretty easy to get consistent results.

I do plan to move beyond the dropping of things into water, and explore the realm of dropping things onto things that aren't water.
