some of these were really cool – and quite obviously some are not real, but you really should have noted that a lot of light and a good (highly reactive finger-on-the-trigger) photographer is also necessary to get the real shots, not just a fast shutter…

scratch the latter part – continuous would take care of that I guess

[...] 如题,全部作品点这里 [...]

Many of these shots required exposures on the order of microseconds – well beyond the capabilities of even the fastest SLR shutter. A strobe light is required to attain these speeds. I doubt these have been photoshopped. I have seen such photos taken in the 1950′s and ’60s, before photoshop was invented.

Just amazing!!

These shots are so incredibly beautiful. What is your preferred camera for most of these types of shots, especially the water droplet shots?
I’m doing some pieces over at http://www.digitalcamerasratingssite.com on this exact subject and would like to know, based on your findings and other around this blog what the best camera is for these shots, in particular.
Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Jon

amazing show

What is good shutter speed to shoot at?

[...] 40 Stunning Examples of High Speed Photography – smashingapp [...]

Great pictures, but why do you have to break things or shoot them to make something interesting. There are amazing sights occuring all around us that don’t require destruction.

Number 28< "bullet Shooting through a balloon" turn it on its side…..what do you see….? spooky or am I tripping? matt

[...] Shutter Speed: Device that controls the exposure time of the photo. The exposure time usually begins at 1/2000 seconds and goes up to 30 seconds. A fast shutter speed is indicated by a smaller amount of exposure time. Thus, a 1/2000 second exposure time is a very quick shutter speed. A 30 second exposure time is a very slow shutter speed. These are some great examples of slow shutter speed photography and fast shutter speed photography. [...]

This collection shud be part of an exhibition ! ! Fantastic !

wow I was blown away by all these pictures I especially liked the picture called, “bullet” that had the card cut in half by a bullet, not only did I like it for its’ still frame picture, but also for the fact that they would of had to set this up so perfectly to be able to hit a card dead on especially from the side, coo-dos to who got this picture, well done. I just was wondering, how is it it was able to be set up like that, is there a specific holder for the card?

suberp really great. i wanna take some photos like this
