Harold Edgerton.

14 Oct

Harold Edgerton is a photographer and his work is very good! He invented the stroboscope – a device to produce short bursts of light. This allowed him to take split-second pictures of objects in motion which could not be seen by the human eye, including bullets and hummingbirds in flight, light bulbs shattering, and athletes in action. Some of his photographs had an exposure time of less than 1/10,000 of a second! Really incredible stuff! and his photos do his hard work and determination justice!
