Re: World in a drop
|Pretty cool! There are many individuals these days doing drop or splash or rebound photography. It is all derived from Doc Edgerton;s pioneering work from the 30's and 40's although today the timing systems are a bit more sophisticated than he had. Now that I think of it another pioneer in this "genre" who often gets little credit is A.M. Worthington who preceded Edgerton.|
If you like this kind of photography you might like to take a look at Martin Waugh's work ... http://www.liquidsculpture.com/
I do the basics in my high speed photography and photinstrumentation classes - students build their own synchronizers and delay devices but we don't spend much time making "pretty" pictures - they can do that on their own time! But in addition to synchronizers with delay it also helps to have a good, reliable and repeatable drop delivery system ... like Martin has!
