Photo Details

  • Title: Breakage
  • State/Province/Region (required): Ohio
  • Country (required): United States
  • Nearest Area: Columbus
  • Nearest Town: Upper Arlington
  • Description: I love capturing split-second moments. The water balloon popping was perfect for such area of creativity. I tried to incorporate the needle with which I popped the balloon, so keeping the balloon in the correct focal distance was paramount.
  • Brief Directions: The best way I could think of tackling this task is to set the camera in an interval mode, paying close attention to making sure that the camera is set to manual exposure mode (and manual focus) so that every exposure is the same. I set the interval to one hertz. That way I could get the "rhythm" down and get a general idea of exactly when to pop the balloon. Don't get frustrated. Know that it will most likely take several trials to get a successful picture. With that said, have plenty of balloons on hand.
  • Notes: A large aperture works great with this type of photo, however you must make sure that the balloon is in the smaller field of focus.
  • Best Season: Spring
  • Gear: Nikon D7000; AF 50mm f/1.8; Oben AC-1410
