Join us for the presentation with Scott Dickson on High Speed Photography. You can see some of his work here: http://ScottDickson.SlickPic.com
Have you ever wanted to take photos of water drop splashes, exploding water balloons or liquid splashes? These events often occur faster than the eye can see, but there is often interesting art in the physics of the event. Learn some of the equipment and techniques which can be used to capture these events.
Pairing commercially available electronic triggers, DSLR cameras and flashes, along with custom built arrangements will enable the images to be beautifully captured.
A presentation will be given showing the various techniques and will discuss the equipment and setup used to capture these events. Example photos will also be shown which will demonstrate these techniques. The impact of many variables will also be discussed, including flash power, flash delay, light placement, etc. The addition of props and various color elements will be shown to enhance, otherwise dull splash effects into exciting works of liquid art. In addition, a few of the techniques will be demonstrated for the group.
