Using normal Canon 580Ex flash guns it is possible to obtain very short flash durations down to 1/35,00 of a second. In order to get shorter durations it is necessary to use very specialised expensive flash units.
Working within the limitations of the Canon 580Ex flash guns and using a Mumford Time Machine to trigger the flashguns directly from external sensors I have started to explore what I can achieve in the realm of High speed flash photography.
The journey started with popping water filled balloons and getting very wet in the process.
Where the journey will end I have no idea but it is a lot of fun walking along the path exploring all of the aspects of High speed photography and getting glimpses into a world few of us can witness with our own eyes.
