I spent last weekend shooting two shows at one of my favorite events to work each year, the Ohio Challenge. It is a hot air balloon and skydiving festival. Friday, we shot a small multimedia display combining a laser show with close prox and traditional display fireworks. Unfortunately, it was very humid with no wind, so the smoke hung to the ground. Great for the lasers, but terrible for the pyro. The second night was a pyromusical with a pyro jump to open the night off. The skydivers start at 10,000' AGL in a star pattern with 6 gerbs strapped to each jumper. Once the breakaway from the first formation, they continue popping more gerbs under the canopies.
