Gizmodo Shooting Challenge 1/1000th

For this challenge I wanted to capture something in extremely fast motion. I knew I was going to the driving range with family so I thought the impact of a golf ball would be perfect. Unfortunately this is a lot harder to capture then you would think, and a golf club is moving a lot faster than what 1/1000 can catch. This picture took roughly 600 shots to capture, out of them I had only 4 shots that even featured the club. Eventually my father in laws arm got tired and we had to start cycling through the family to keep hitting balls. The lucky winner was my wife with this shot.

There was one other picture though, This was the shot that I didn’t choose because there was a bit too much blur.
