Wow! Presumably you had a balloon filled with water? Amazing how you can still see the size of the balloon even though it has burst! Cool experiment!

Yeah! The balloon was filled with water, popped with a pellet gun. A friend and I both got photos of it, really fun Friday night. I need to utilize the laser "freeze" function for the next test session, you can see here the flash actually actuated a few times because the beam was being tripped a few times while the water was in the air. The freeze feature makes it so it won't send a second "tripped" signal for another X milliseconds.

I used the Cactus LV5 trigger (I think that's it's name?), hard wired to a Cactus RF60 flash.
