The mirror shot mixed with a water balloon

  1. Today's test shoot was a mess. I need to lose the frown and tighten the lighting. I'm busy processing the video. Nikon D50 with 18-140mm lens. Sound activated flash trigger firing the SB800 on the right at 1/16th power. SB800 on the left at 1/4 power into a bounce umbrella. f16 iso200 2 seconds on a 20 second timer to give me time to walk to my position and aim at the plank behind the balloon so as not to damage the garage door, then I have to remember to raise the mirror higher and move the air pistol in line with the mirror. Lots of work to do....

  2. I wasn't sure what to think when I read that title. But the second one is great- I like your eye just visible in the mirror and the "hole" in the balloon!
  3. Thanks, initially my head was supposed to be totally behind the balloon and my face only visible in the mirror - but things don't always work out like I plan :D 
    Here's the video I just uploaded.
