    how many of these did you blow up? it’s a great idea, the lighting is great too. i think it would have more impact if you zoomed in on it directly, to put emphasis on the bottle, and make it more sensible to print.

  • That was about the 6th one. Most of them were just explosions that you couldn’t really tell what was going on. Timing was difficult when I had someone shooting it with a .22 caliber rifle and although the 7D is fast, it’s definitely not a high-speed camera. At about 25’ away, I was getting hit as if a grenade had gone off. It was my 1st attempt at something like this so there are several things I’d like to differently.
