Picture of The Day: High Speed Photography

October 16, 2010

Any guesses what are these pictures about? Of course you can see some kind of liquid being splashed, but what is it and how were these pictures taken? These are images of bursting balloons filled with colored/plain water! These beautiful and amazing images were taken by photographer Edward Horsford who resides in London. In order to get the frozen images of bursting balloons he uses a high speed trigger, strobe, camera, balloon and  pin to prick the balloon. Timing of flash is important and therefore he designed the trigger himself which is sound activated; the trigger picks up the sound of the popping of the balloon which sets the flash on. For more details about his technique you can follow this article.
