Here are some from last night’s audio trigger adventures! I’ve had the idea for the fish shot from some time now and I think it turned out pretty well.
The setup for both shots was as follows:
- 6x Nikon Sb-800s set at 1/128th power 1x audio trigger
- .22 cal pistol with “primer only” rounds
- audio sensitive flash trigger with programmable delay
- Nikon D300
- Nikon 80-200mm 2.8
The camera was set to ISO 500 to achieve f/8. By setting the flashes to 1/128th power, the effective duration was around 1/40,000 sec, fast enough to freeze exploding glass.
Thanks to John, Kevin, Fielding and Andy for bringing the extra equipment and ideas. Oh and by the way, NO FISH WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THESE PHOTOS!
