Puddle-Jumping Domo

Posted by Caz on Saturday, 26th November 2011

I thought I would get Domo to help me with today’s picture. This was the setup:

I was using the microphone sensor to detect the noise of Domo jumping into the puddle. The camera was set off automatically on bulb (f/18) and 70-90ms later the flashes went off. This is the first time I’ve used my 5-flash setup. More details on flash setup and power in this video:

The hardest part was training Domo to jump in the puddle and stay upright. He managed it a few times. The best was the one I chose for Day #1426. But there were some amusing outtakes too:
