Does_grey_matter (??

I like the marble shaped spheres that appeared.

Strobist / setup
- A white plastic sheet is laid over a speaker.
- Black and white water based paint drops are placed on the sheet.
- Sound is passed through the speaker via an ipod through a stereo. This causes the drops to dance.
- A modified HiViz sound trigger is used to fire two flashes.
- 2 - SB-800 flashes used, set to 1/32 power.)
Ghostly_Intervention (The "ghost" seems to be intervening between the demons and the intended victim -- good Casper!

Drops of water-diluted black tempura paint placed in close proximity. I added some white paint in between.

Setup:
- A sheet of plastic is placed over a balloon which is stretched over a speaker.
- Sound (a portion of a song..) is passed through the speaker, causing the plastic to vibrate.
- Drops of liquid are placed on the sheet and "jump" to the vibration.
- A Stop Shot flash trigger detects the sounds with a mic and is used to fire two SB-800 flashes set on either side.
- Another SB-800 is set to optical slave behind.
- Converted to B&W in Lightroom 3, also some contrast levels were adjusted as well.)
Rendezvous_at_White_Oak (I like the "Oak" tree in between.

Three drops of water-diluted black tempura paint placed in close proximity. I added some white paint in between. 

Setup:
- A sheet of plastic is placed over a balloon which is stretched over a speaker.
- Sound (a portion of a song..) is passed through the speaker, causing the plastic to vibrate.
- Drops of liquid are placed on the sheet and "jump" to the vibration.
- A Stop Shot flash trigger detects the sounds with a mic and is used to fire two SB-800 flashes set on either side.
- Another SB-800 is set to optical slave behind.
- Converted to B&W in Lightroom 3, also some contrast levels were adjusted as well.)
Oil_Dance (Big Oil is dancing on your dollar....

I was originally trying to show a leaky oil gusher on a dollar bill, but didn't quite nail it. I liked the way this one came out., however, especially the dancing dude.

Strobist / Setup
- Two drops of black, water based paint on a dollar bill print.
- Print was glued to a balloon which was stretched across a speaker.
- Sound was pumped through a stereo and drove the speaker.
- HiViz modified sound trigger was used for the flashes.
- 2 - SB-800 flashes were used, set to 1/64th power. One was in front, below the camera and the other was at 9 o'clock and bounced off white foamboard behind.)
