11 High Speed Splash Photos


Ok, so that’s probably not the best title we’ve ever come up with, but hopefully this collection makes up for that. These are high speed shots of objects making a splash in liquid. Now that might not sound terribly exciting but the results are quite interesting. Moreover, this is the type of thing you can do at home with your camera when you can’t think of other topics to shoot. We hope you enjoy.

You don’t always need a better camera. As long as it has a B shutter speed setting, you could probably get a reasonable shot. 🙂
