Italian artist Alberto Seveso was born in Milan, but is now working as a freelancer in Portoscuso, Sardinia-Italy. In his series a due Colori Seveso experiments with high-speed photography while trying to find a new way to make something beautiful using ink and water. Loving to play with colors and tones, this series embodies the concept of stopping time through ink in the image.

Alan Sailer creates beautiful imagery using high speed photography techniques he developed. While we’ve all seen high speed stuff like this before but I for one have never seen it treated in such an artistic way. It’s amazing how he captures just the right moment in these (the pony head about to burst is impossibly well timed). The color composition is spot on too.
If you dig through his flickr portfolio you’ll also find a lot on his process and equipment. Here are a few highlights: Some shots of his failed flash project, a flash interface diagram sketch, and his test bench setup.
