Incredible High-Speed Photography by Daniel Nimmervoll

Daniel Nimmervoll is an Austria-based photographer who captured these incredible macro shots of water droplets using a high speed camera. The shot above captures a .22 caliber bullet that passed through the column of water produced by the drop of water as it hit the surface. Capturing a bullet in flight is no easy feat by itself, capturing one as it passes through a drop of water which exists for a mere second is relatively unheard of. High tech equipment helps, but it is the photographer’s skill whom due credit should be given.

High Speed Photos of Spinning Paint-Soaked Toys by Peter Schafrick

Peter Schafrick is a commercial photographer with a good portion of his portfolio dedicated to images of liquids splashed, poured, thrown and tossed. To create these wonderful shots, he soaked a variety of toys and tools in different colors of paint, launched them using centrifugal force and captured the images at high speed. Schafrick created a special rig called the Spinster that allows him to quickly launch each object into a spin.

High-Speed Photographs of Ink Mixing With Oil by Alberto Seveso

High-Speed Photographs of Ink Mixing With Oil by Alberto Seveso

Dropping, is the natural evolving of my previous projects using ink and water. This time I tried something different using the oil instead the water and the outcome was amazing! The title is very important to me, because it is a tribute to the master of the dripping technique, Jackson Pollock. I always was a big fan of the chaos theory. – Alberto Seveso

When it comes to high-speed liquid photography, it would be hard to find more than one or two people in the world who can match illustrator Alberto Seveso. In the past, he has created a surreal set of photos that mixed portraits with ink and the awesome “Ink Riders” series of LEGO men surfing on ink. And now he’s back for another spectacular project called Dropping where Seveso eschewed the water he typically uses and used oil instead.

To achieve these photographs, Seveso dropped ink into a container of oil and photographing them at high-speed. and flipping the resulting photographs upside down. What you get in the end is a set of ink droplets seemingly defying gravity and reaching towards the sky.

High-Speed Photographs of Dogs Shaking by Carli Davidson

High-Speed Photographs of Dogs Shaking by Carli Davidson

Shake is a new book of photos from Portland-based photographer Carli Davidson picturing dogs doing what they do best – making a huge mess. She gets the dogs into a good mood by playing around with them and then shoots their portraits with a high-speed camera and strobe lights while they shake water off of their heads. The amusing portraits seem to transform ordinary pets into strangely distorted animals right out of a cartoon. This project was partially inspired by her dog Norbert whose drool she regularly scrubs from the walls of her home due to his frequent shaking.

She began her work with animals at the Oregon Zoo by photographing birds of prey, and now does freelance work photographing animals for both commercial and individual clients. Shake features a total of 130 high speed photos of 61 dogs, some of which are also available as prints.
