Artist's Description

Another high speed shot. Many of you have asked how these shots are taken so here is a basic overview. The subject is set up against a black background, The camera is set up on a tripod and manually focussed, a flashgun is set up off camera with an extension cord to a sound trigger and adjusted to illuminate the subject. Manual camera settings are ISO 100, f8 and shutter at 1 second, flashgun is set to around 1/16th power. Now the tricky bit, darken the room just leave enough light so that you can see to shoot the subject with an air pistol, make sure you have a good pellet catcher, a folded blanket seems to work OK, now open the shutter with a remote cord and the shoot the subject before the shutter closes after 1 second, the sound trigger fires the flashgun which is several times faster than your camera and it is this that creates the shot. There is generally quite a bit of adjustments to be made to settings until eventually you get the shots you are looking for. Camera gear Canon 7D and 100-400 zoom lens (you don’t want to be too close, camera gear and water don’t go together too well)Sound triggers are readily available on the internet, but you could have a look on Andrew Rose’s photoblog, he is the guy that introduced me to high speed photography and he is now building and selling triggers too. Also check out high speed photography on You Tube. REMEMBER air pistols are dangerous so be very very carefull, make sure and wear safety glasses. have FUN LINK http://www.andrewsphotoblog.co.uk/category/all-...
