Super High Speed Photography
Sometimes I just like to look at cool photos. I'm no expert high-speed photographer--frankly, I'm not even a rank amateur—but dang, I think this stuff looks cool. DPS recently posted a neat gallery of high-speed photographs that are full of big-time wows. It's amazing to me that this kind of photography, which 50 years ago would have required industrial strength lighting gear (and the distinct possibility of death), can now be done by hobbyists. Serious hobbyists, to be certain, but something within reach nonetheless. After the gallery, DPS has compiled a list of links for photographers interested in learning more about how they can make this kind of high-speed photographic adventure too. Well worth a look, whether you're just a gawker (like me) or someone who wants to do these shots for yourself.
