I don’t really go on Flickr hardly at all anymore, but I’ll make the effort even just to look at artist Ariel Schlesinger’s feed. His work makes me miss the days when Flickr pools were popping off with all kinds of great street photography (thanks for ruining everything, Yahoo). There’s something really satisfying in the way he captures these mundane little moments. Have a look at some more of his photos below (and stay tuned for a separate post of his amazing artwork).
Inspired by Mythbusters’ slow-motion videos but thwarted by high-speed cameras that were too expensive, Vancouver-based electronics engineer David Kronstein decided to create his own! Chronos 1.4 shoots 720p at 1,500fps starting around USD $2,499 (cameras with similar features currently sell for around $25k).
