    Wow!! Vikram, this is an amazing shot! Very cool!

  • Thanks Clare – been meaning to do this one ever since I saw the potential in a flower-vase lying at home – glad I was able to follow through today.

    Oh now this is different!!!! I love it! : )

  • Thanks Jennifer!! Slightly different – but I had to try the cliche shot first (making a collection of them).
    Thanks for the fav too!

    Tell the truth … how many didn’t work out and ended up in your “bad” folder. And if you say none then I am utterly in awe and you are my hero!

  • ROTFL!! Took 10 shots of this particular object and have 6 keepers. It starts becoming a rythm once you’ve done about 10-20 and so with some objects have 100% keepers.
    Almost all the effort here is in the set-up and getting the lighting balance right – after that – it’s 1/180th sec at a time.

    Very very cool! LOL…I suppose you really couldn’t have your title as ‘faster than a speeding crazy ball’!! Seriously though, love this!

  • LOL! This was cos it reminded me of that famous shot of a bullet slicing through a card taken by Harold Edgerton who pioneered high-speed strobe photography.
    So glad you love this!

    Saweeeet Vikram! I have wanted to try this for some time so expect a bmail asking for all your info hahaha! Fantastic details and again the lighting is perfect. I LOVE that you have flipped this as well. Nice work dude :)

  • Thanks Shelly!
    I have most of the info on the previous shot – but sure, ask away – be glad to go into it in more detail.
    Flipped it when I saw it looked like a bullet. Till then I’d planned to “Ctrl+I” this pic right from when I shot it.
