High-Speed Photos Capture The Moment Water Balloons Explode

There’s definitely something satisfying about seeing moments that our eyes aren’t usually able to capture.

London-based photographer Edward Horsford has come up with an interesting timing technique in which he is able to capture the exact time a water balloon explosions.

He’s well-known for this exciting series, saying, “I started these as a way to challenge myself technically and creatively.” He’s had great success with this self-initiated challenge!

As you can see by the following images, the effect produces an almost fur-like image as the water explodes from the balloon. Give the intricate setup required for every single image, he has managed to capture a truly unique series of images with no two being the same. Check them out below!

Horsford sets up his camera, and armed with only a trigger that is set to capture the specific point he needs, he captures the exact moments that water balloons explode. The results are genuinely stunning and are art just as much as they are photos.

The photographer wants to capture moments on camera that are not often seen due to their high-speed nature, such as the aforementioned water balloons bursting. Through the use of dark background, his hand, and a number of brightly coloured water balloons, Horsford has perfectly timed the moment he captured the explosion at its best

He actually had to create a customised trigger that would allow his camera to adapt to the incredibly fast speeds. The dark setting allows the flash to be used as the focal point of the photograph, and he will test a variety of angles, lighting, and colour combinations to capture the perfect image.

Photographer “Time Travels” by Photoshopping Herself into Old Celebrity Photos

Have you ever imagined if you could go back in time and take a picture with famous people? If yes, you will probably enjoy a similar series in 2013, called “Time Travel” created by an artist, Flora. She is a young fine art photographer from Hungary. She uses exquisite photo manipulation in order to create surreal images that are thematically focused on identity, relationships, and dreams. However, today we will mainly focus on how she discovers the possibilities of the well known “selfie” phenomenon with famous people. Let’s admit that it would be pretty difficult to explain the concept of a selfie to a person from the 20th century. But this fact makes these series even more interesting!

“After the first official picture of a black hole was released last week, I decided to look into the Theory of relativity and I’ve been wondering how cool it was, if I could travel faster than the speed of light, ergo I could travel back in time. While I’ve been making a “selfie” with Albert Einstein (photoshopping myself into a picture of him) I decided to celebrate this amazing discovery with a series of pictures, where I travel back in time. ” writes Flora in her website.
