Water Balloon Hat Self Portrait

Water Balloon Hat Self Portrait

I have let my hair grow very long and thought I would document it before getting it cut. For this Water Balloon Hat Self Portrait I figured I will need a water balloon hat. I used a product called trigger trap to trigger the camera as soon as it heard the pop. Blowing some air into the water balloons helps make the pop sound a little louder so trigger trap can catch the right second it pops. The final image is of 3 images I put into Photoshop to make one image. Self Portraits are mostly basic images so the Water Balloon Hat adds that something a little bit different.

Previous Projects with Trigger Trap

Smashing Glass with a BB GUN
I used Trigger Trap to smashing items using a BB Gun I picked up at Canadian Tire. In this project I had used a Winchester CO2 Pistol. I needed to get eye protection because of the flying glass

Smashing Glass Project

In this project I used a basic $35 BB gun to pop balloons. I then used Photoshop to make a wine glass out of water and added fire.
