A digital camera, some fast-moving subject, and a bit of knowledge about how to take the best pictures of moving subjects will launch you on the road to some of the most interesting photographs you’ve ever taken.

One of the greatest pleasures in photography is experimentation. A digital camera, some fast-moving subject, and a bit of knowledge about how to take the best pictures of moving subjects will launch you on the road to some of the most interesting photographs you’ve ever taken. Although some blurring can be effective in communicating a sense of high-speed motion, some photographers want the subject to be frozen in time to get some pretty special photographic effects.

Below we present you 12 breathtaking examples of high-speed photography (plus one more which you can see above), which are supposed to provide you with some inspiration of what can be done with high-speed photography. All the examples have got links to their sources. You can also explore further works of the photographers at Flickr we’ve featured below.
