Photographer Pops Balloons Filled With Water, And It Is The Most Satisfying Thing Ever
Edward Horsford is a London-based photographer that creates split-second water balloon explosions. His shots are not only very pleasant to look at but it also takes a lot of work and preparation to make each shot unique. In an interview with DIYPhotography, Horsford explained how he captures these incredible shots: “Most of my shots have the balloons filled with water (and some dye usually). I have tried spraying them and various other ideas, but have yet to get something I’m happy posting.”
Hosford also explained the way he makes the balloons pop so nicely: “Generally I use smallish balloons so that when filled the rubber is very taught (it’s actually quite a challenge to find balloons of the right size). I have a long piece of sharpened steel rod that I use to do the popping. I can mount it on a stand or in the air.” It took him a lot of time to make these shots as he customized his equipment for it to be able to adapt to these very complex and exact shots.
