Breakfast is Ready

Here are some high-speed shots from my analog month. All photos were created using an audio trigger and multiple speedlights set to 1/128th power. I am working on a guide detailing how to make photos similar to these, stay tuned…

The Smiling Melon

 .22 Versus the Light Bulb, NOTa photoshop compositeThe powdery stuff in that bulb is apparently toxic

Here is the setup shot for all of the photos. Basically on the black background photos I turned off the 3 background lights and had two SBs shooing into the V-card instead of one.
