Some tips for trying high speed photography at home:

• Set up your shot in a completely dark room. You’ll need to leave the shutter open and focus on using a flash to create the exposure you want.

• Reduce your flash output to get a quick exposure. Try 1/6000 seconds.

• A sound trigger can help you synchronize your flash with the action.

•  Set your camera up on a tripod or flat surface.
