Jim Kramer, High-Speed Photographer, Creates Amazing Images Of Water Droplets (PHOTOS)

Photographer Jim Kramer is back with another batch of incredible images captured using high-speed photography. This time, he's added pinballs, magnets and lasers into the mix in order to to spice up the already dramatic photos.

With two Paul Buff Einstein 640 High Speed Digital Monolight cameras, Kramer sources a variety of ingredients for the shots, including water, milk, glycol and other substances.

"I also rely on additives like guar gum, glycerin and soap to achieve the shot," Kramer told The Huffington Post in a telephone interview.

Using a stop shot to track the path of falling droplets, a flash is set off at the exact second of impact to illuminate the shot. To further manipulate the image, Kramer uses black and white glass or mirrors as backdrops.

But methodology aside, Kramer said he's truly inspired by the fact that no two shots are ever the same.

"The most interesting part of this type of work is that the potential variations are almost limitless," he said.

Kramer isn't the only photographer experimenting with high speed photography. Both Markus Reugels and Brian Davies have produced some dramatic photos worth checking out.
