Item information:

2_Cool (Water balloon pop with sunglasses. I like the bowtie!

Setup / strobist;
- Water balloon suspended in front of a black background material. 
- A home built popping rig is hidden behind the background material.
- The rig fires a pin into the balloon and triggers the flashes using a Quaketronics flash trigger.
- Two SB-800 flashes are used; one at 1:30 and one at 9 o'clock. Both are set to 1/8th power.
- Glasses were set on the ballon before popping.
- Some touch up in Picasa including light levels and tint color. I had to remove one piece of errant balloon remnant near the glasses.)
