You use a high-speed camera to film things you want to slow way down, things you can’t normally see with the naked eye. It’s caught on as an art form that’s beautiful and fascinating.
This high-speed demonstration of microwave destruction is amusing. (Don’t try it, unless you want to destroy your microwave and possibly seriously injure yourself!)
This capture of a dove in flight is amazing!
So must check out Alan Sailer’s incredible high-speed photo set on Flickr!
Of course I couldn’t resist either. Checkout the film I made of the color and water experiments I did a couple of years ago.
