    Here, there and everywhere!
    Harold Edgerton’s famous high speed picture of a bullet going through an apple. Taken in 1964, it became a very famous image , not least because it was such an unusual photo based on a great achievement in high speed photography. Edgerton, professor at MIT, is also inventor of the strobe flash and a pioneer of stop-action photography.

    He collaborated with Jacques-Yves Cousteau to experiment photographing some of the deepest seabeds in the world . stopping-time1.jpg

    The last 2 picture's are from a different fast shutter photographer, but I couldn't find his name, sorry all.

    I'd like to thank this man. I have had some very fucked up nights back in the day partying and rocking strobe lights! Nice set @Airbornemama
