Science experiment #1: Film Canister Cannon
I've been a little unmotivated to shoot anything lately until a guy on dpreview posted a strobe shot of a breaking light bulb which inspired me to revisit my scientific background with the camera.
Harold Edgerton (http://www.cmp.ucr.edu/exhibitions/e.../edgerton.html) was the father of strobe-captured motion photography and a big inspiration to me. I remember being facinated by his work as a teenager. Lacking a gun to shoot an apple I have to turn to other items around the house.
I will be sharing more experiments as time permits.
Now the film canister cannon... Lysol + spark = (big) bang. My ears are still ringing from the first test shot. This was taken (with earplugs in place) in the dark with a sound-activated flash. Note the nice puff of smoke and the little fireball in the canister
Canon 300D, ISO 200, f 6.3

I like the smoke that appears at the bottom! Cool capture
My most favourite tool: my improving creativity!
