Not at all. I'm simply stating that I take my time on photoshoots to take a BTS shot specificly for this thread. I am aware the posing isn't the same, I won't interrupt the session to do the bts because some people want the same pose on both shots...

Maybe I'm misreading things, but I thought his post was more playful than anything else. I don't think anyone here is speaking against your images...

Nah, I keep using the same glass and just rinse it. As long as I don't let the paint settle it just rinses right out. It is a pain in the neck walking back and forth to the sink though, especially when I have to keep stepping over the tripod that the flash is on.

Simple solution... buy more glasses, and dump the used ones into a bucket of water until time to wash them all... ;)

I wouldn't be concerned. I would suspect people would want to view this thread, probably because it's a setup thread, so they could learn some new stuff. And of course with viewing a thread there's always the chance of wanting to comment, without actually contributing to the actual theme of the thread. I see no harm in it at all.

Thanks. Appreciate it. I was hoping the dry humor would be picked up haha.

Therefor, they are done at the end of the session. Same pose or not, it's still the same exact setup.

Sorry for my un-cooperative share ;)

Once again, just dry humor, no worries.

Here are my latest shots using my home made laser trigger. Dropping pebbles into soap bubbles...

The effect is soo cool, although that setup is telling me nothing... I'm confused by all of it.

I agree, the end shots are amazing! I also have no idea what everything is in your setup.

Ha ha yeah sorry it's a bit of a mess!

I've got a sheet of glass laid down flat. I've got a suction pad with flexible arm attached to the glass. The arm holds a cardboard tube vertically. The tube is there to allow me to drop the pebbles in exactly the same place each time.

I use a drinking straw with some washing up liquid solution to make a bubble on the glass, right under the cardboard tube. I drop a pebble down the tube, and it lands on the bubble.

I've made a laser trigger system (the guts of it are in the 2nd photo) which basically opens the camera shutter, then waits for the laser beam to be broken. When the beam is broken it fires the flashes (2 x 430EXII) and closes the shutter. I've set the beam up just under the carboard tube so when the pebble falls out of the tube it breaks the laser beam. I've set a 12ms delay between the beam being broken and the flashes firing.

The coloured background is produced by a load of coloured elastic bands hanging on a bit of string behind the bubble....

I need to have a tidy up actually - might take another clearer set up shot then.

Thanks a lot for the compliments!!

I haven't seen an electronic breadboard in a long time. I was thinking recently that with surface mounted components they probably were not used any more.

The imagination required to dream this up is kinda scarey.

But nice job. Beautiful execution of a plan. The ends do justify the means in this case.
