    Default Ballons bursts



    430ex : 60 degree behind, right. 1/32
    400D : 1/250secs, F10, ISO100, 50mm.

    It was fun doing but, a big mess to clear up. It's not really good, I know, cos the background is still kinda able to be seen.

    So, any comments?

    placing a card inbetween the flash and background to block off the light would solve the background spill problem..

    I somehow feel this shot was taken a split second too late. I had seen shots with the shape of the balloon still very visibly made by the water. Dunno how they did it. I think they puncture the balloon from the front using dart, that way remains of the balloon will be hidden by the water. I had no chance to try this setup.


    Good effort.

    I have to admit, the timing isn't perfect, was rather slow. After 6 tries, this was the best. The position how it was pierced was important too but, I did it alone. I will do it again next time, with someone. And...Thanks!
