4X5 field camera
This shot of an axe slicing through a light bulb is actually a light bulb
being thrown at an axe mounted to a support. The axe blade was pointing
upward and the bulbs were thrown down at the blade. The viewing orientation
was reversed for the illusion. Three small strobes were used for this
open flash shot. The first strobe was connected to the delayed PC output
of the delay module
with the other 2 slaved off the first. A laser
trigger was used with the beam set about an inch above the blade.
A sound trigger would have worked equally well for this shot.
