A lot can happen in the blink of an eye. Astonishing things can occur in a split of a second, things that happen so quickly our eyes canâ€™t see it. Thatâ€™s where high speed photography comes in.
High speed photography is the art of photographing a rapidly occurring event, an exciting area of photography that captures some amazing images. The close-up splash of a drop of rain in perfect focus, a boxerâ€™s face shifting as he gets punched, bullet tearing through a playing card, these are all wonderful examples of high-speed photos.
