i have had the chance to have a bit of a play with one of these
camera triggers over the last few days but not in the way that
they were made for………….

i have been testing it out for high speed photography
water drop photography and water balloon popping
and as you can see from the image above its not to bad
we did not spend a lot of time setting up or used good lighting
on the water drop photos but if we had / when we do there will
be more images posted below in a gallery…

our water drop setup was 2 macro led ring lights with low batteries
a small plastic takeaway carton filled with water
and a used party popper upside down to drip water from…

the #micnova trigger was setup in sound mode to trigger
our camera on the sound of the dripping water
so a quiet room was needed along with setting the trigger to almost
at its highest point but as you can see by the image we used its not
too bad just leave your camera in place for a few mins and it will take multiple
images some good bad and great

just remember to set your camera up first.. in manual mode and manual focus
the lens on the point where the water drips at ….
use a ruler as a guide so you can focus on something

over all i love this trigger and will use it as the instructions say
it was meant for….
will have it out for some wildlife photos in the summer

watch this space for the images………….

Lemarchand’s box – Lament Configuration – hellraiser

20160209154558_IMG_9359_tnLemarchand’s box is a fictional lock puzzle or puzzle box appearing in horror stories by Clive Barker, or in works based on his original stories. The best known of these boxes is the Lament Configuration, which features prominently throughout the Hellraiser movie series. This was designed and made by Simon Sayce, one of the original creative team. A Lemarchand’s box is a mystical/mechanical device that acts as a door — or a key to a door — to another dimension or plane of existence. The solution of the puzzle creates a bridge through which beings may travel in either direction across this “Schism”. The inhabitants of these other realms may seem demonic to humans. An ongoing debate in the film series is whether the realm accessed by the Lament Configuration is intended to be the Abrahamic version of Hell, or a dimension of endless pain and suffering that is original to the Hellraiser films.
