It got cold outside so I decided to play around with an old fish tank, black backdrop, and two flashes. I have to admit I was not creative enough to think of this myself as I saw it on youtube while showing my daughter some ideas for long exposure pictures. For creative challenged people, it's amazing the ideas you can get from youtube.

I've pasted a few of them below. They have all had blacks increased, boosted clarity, and some spot exposure adjustments to make calcium deposits on the tank disappear.

Any ideas on how to improve? I tried dropping/tossing from all different angles and speeds.

+1 on the punching shot.

How did you trigger the shutter with these?

I used a wired shutter remote with about a 18" cable. It really was not difficult to time the shots.
