High speed action photography is a definite attention grabber. Consider the bullet flying through the apple or the balloon rupturing in midframe. Chase Jarvis explains just how one would go about capturing a high speed action shot. Along with a video from behind the scenes Chase gives you four pointers to get you started. First keep your ambient light low, second remember it is the strobe that freezes the action, not your super fast shutter speed, you will need a special trigger and a high speed flash for best results. See Chase’s blog for a more detailed explanation.
