Rum Shooter 11/365

Jan 11, 2017

Rum Shooter

Well another fun and exciting day around here.  Been itching to do some laser photography with the MIOPS Nerotrigger lately.  Turns out it was dead yesterday, so today I finally gave it a go.  It was a bust.  During Myrt's afternoon nap I rushed downstairs to set it all up and boom.  First drop the glass shatters.

bummer....lol, hey at least I got one pic out of it.

So I threw down some towels and picked up what glass I could and off to get Myrt up from slumber.  This evening I decided to give it another go and well, the laser does not do a good job of triggering with pouring liquid, OR I just suck at pouring, either way it didn't quite work as good as just triggering it by hand.  With me pushing the shutter I can fire away and maybe come up with something, vs. the laser which is a 3" exposure in a dark room with the MIOPS set to trigger the flashes.

The final image I came up with today is a composite of 3 seperate shots, the booze, the coke, and the splash.

Didn't light the front (which I should have) so cropped it down a bit in the final image.

BTS this time shows the unused MIOPS,  there are a million uses for the thang, but not tonight MIOPS, not tonight.
