    Royal P.I.T.A., I really dig those first two especially. Cool shots!

    \_==o IxxI, those marble photos kick ASS! Like little planets. I'd love to see more of those....


    And nice one, FBJ. =)

    The light source behind (and shining through the glass) was multi-colored in a fan pattern, and hand-holding both I just moved both around in tight until the framing and colors looked cool in the viewfinder.



    Just added a few new shots taken Saturday:

    OK, I tried. It didn't come out as I had hoped. Because I had to turn the flashes way down to get the short flash duration that I needed, I had to use more heads, and I didn't have the power to diffuse them, so these are more about getting enough light at all as opposed to getting the light that you want.

    Also, in my haste to finish the project before the weekend was out, I managed to fry my delay circuit, so I only had an instantaneous trigger, so I could either get the instant of impact by keeping the camera shutter open, and exposing when the flashes popped, or get a little delay by having the trigger fire the shutter, which takes a few milliseconds to open.

    I also noticed when processing my shots that as the night went on, the battery in my master flash was getting low, so a lot of the later shots some of the slaves didn't fire, so I had to push them 2 to 3 stops. And I just ended up getting lazy and frustrated, so the shoot got sloppy and messy in terms of paying attention to details (you know, the little things, like framing, exposure, quality, actually getting a picture)

    New shots here.

    The wiring diagram for the trigger I used can be found here, and the guy who's shots I wished I was getting with this can be found here.

    Thanks. I'm kinda "meh" about that image, actually.

    The magenta is the laser refracting through the crystal. The white streaks around are where I was shining the penlight.

    Again..."meh."

    ValleyFan, I admire the time and effort you must've put into this. I REALLY like the 2nd, 3rd and 5th shots especially. In the 5th the clarity of the suspended water is outstanding!



    Thanks for sharing that link..... pretty cool stuff indeed!!

    Thanks for the encouragement, I think I will try it again. Not for this challenge, but some time, when I get some time, so I can actually get the triggers working the way they are supposed to, and I can take my time setting up the shoot, and hopefully get something good.
