In the land of the Water Balloon People, Joe realized the instant the spikey plant was thrown that this would be his last practical joke. by 



After a few miss timed shots, I was amazed at how straight forward photographing popping water balloons were. I only got wet once. Although I couldn’t see them, I could hear my neighbours laughing when I spent 30 minutes jumping up and down to get the right body and clothing shape. The rest is lots of fiddling in photoshop. I hope you like it.

All shots were taken with a Canon 5D, 24-70mm at 57mm, f/16, 1/125 sec, ISO 100. No filters used. Studio Lights set to 1/32. A shower head and a thick skin.

    LOL Dart!!! This is so refreshingly magical!! It looks like someone put a screw through a copper hot water pipe and the water is hot so the mischievous little elf is trying to get out of the hot water he has just found himself in!!! I wonder where all this motivation has sprung from?! And then someone threw something at him for not thinking before hammering!!!! LOLOLOLOLOLOL! Fantastic work there Dart!! :)))

  • I think the jumping up and down was enough excitement for the day, let alone adding peeping tom to my resume. x
