This week at the Purdue Photography Club we are going to be having fun with high-speed photography. I setup and shot some test photos in my kitchen sink, capturing water dripping out of my facet. The key is to use a strobe, in this case I used my Nikon SB-800 Speedlight, to stop the motion and not just muscle it with shutter speed alone. The first 5 of these photographs were shot using a macro lens so I could get up close and personal on the exploding water droplets. Here are the results of my late night adventure down high-speed lane. Enjoy!
