I had one TV. I had one shot at this...lol. Everything had to line up perfectly. In advance I said "The chances of REALLY getting this shot are next to zero." I would love to say how skillful I am the truth is that I was lucky!

By the way...don't try this at home! Exploding TVs can be dangerous. I am just a little nuts!

Sometimes luck does play a big part in certain kinds of shots. Here is one of my breaking shots:



We had about 20 old monitors that we were breaking, so we were helping luck a little. We also made sure that everyone was wearing safety glasses including the model. Several other safety precautions were also taken.

cheers,
rfs

Not only are those great shots, but it looks like hellish fun! I think we all secretly have a fetish with breaking glass....LOL

GREAT picture! How did you time it? 3-2-1 Go? Or were you just looking in the viewfinder and predicted the perfect moment?

You did this "manually"? No "Doc Edgerton" techniques?
Awesome - just freakin' awesome.
