This was done with a sound trigger and a pocket wizard flex tt5 with hyper sync allowing a shutter speed of 1/1000 of a second. I set it to trigger my camera 150th of a second after the water balloon popped. THE ONLY PHOTOSHOP was putting all of them together and a few face swaps due to closed eyes. Created for Aaron's Leak Detection in Orlando Fl

So creative! WOW!!!!! Thanks for sharing how you captured it too!
LeeBennett January 02, 2014
Very creative, congratulations on your feature!
Stanley_Photog January 02, 2014
Excellent job in capturing your subjects! My only suggestion would be to fix the hotspots running along the left side of the lady's upper torso as the lighting appears unnatural as the man should be blocking light reaching that portion of her body whereas her face works well.

I really like how the whole family looks so elegant and formal, which makes the water splash so much more hilarious.

Diego_Gracia_Photography January 03, 2014
Unbelievable how cool and relaxed your models look, considering that 2-3 liters of water are being thrown against their heads. In particular the kids. And interesting how soft water looks at a shutter speed of 1/1000 of a second. I would have expected it to look a lot harder and sharper. Good one, though.
