I have been away for the last week which is why this blog has been quiet. I was back in the UK for a conference, at the University where I came from – the University of Hertfordshire, just 20 miles north of London – and I also spent some time with my folks. I took some images of the village they are from and I will be posting those up soon.
One way I keep in touch with happenings at my old University is through their monthly email to staff on events associated with the University. One thing that caught my eye with the latest missive, photography related of course, is that a member of staff from the School of Electronic, Communication and Electrical Engineering had designed and developed high-speed flash trigger equipment. He then worked with a local company, called Blue Shift, to produce some nice imagery (which I think is usually destined for the walls of corporate offices).
I’ve always been fascinated by high-speed photography, freezing time in essence, and this work I thought was really nice. I am not sure what is innovative about this flash equipment, but I thought that the results were quite beautiful. Look at the Fleeting Glimpses gallery to see what I mean.
