Focal Plane Shutter Photography
It is the Henri Lartigue's photograph of a speeding racecar. The technical property of the camera focal plane shutter, is here used for an amazing artistic view of the world. A relativistic world where the speed of the car transform the objects in the space and in the time.
I think in this picture, all the concepts of photography are summarized, use the best tecnique, at the best moment, for the best artistic picture.
How was it possibile to take this picture? You have to understand how a Focal Plane Shutter works... and than... use it for taking action shots like the elicopter one.
Have fun looking also for slow scan photography, it is the same concept, but slower....
