      I have a mate who owns a commercial studio a few minutes walk from where I work. We occasionally work on a new concept in our lunch breaks.

      ‘This was created in a single exposure, 1.6 seconds. The strobe used is a neewer Vision 4 on stroboscopic mode (15 flashes @ 15 Hz)

      the ball was bounced on a sloping table, then the camera triggered remotely  the camera is at the same tilt as the table.

        What a blast. Like seeing physics in action. Like to see shots like these with multiple cascading balls at differing trajectories. The possibilities are endless.

          I was thinking coin toss, but I am so going to try this as well!
