Alright, first thing’s first- the following images were NOT “photoshopped”, nor were they run through an image editor for anything other than resizing. These otherworldly images are a result of ingenious lighting and shutter-speed settings.

The technology behind high speed photography was developed by German weapons scientists during the First World Ward to aid in arms research and development. Today, there are several methods one can use to take high speed photographs, but all of them basically involve very fast shutter or camera sensor speeds.

Our eyes, while being incredible machines on their own, suffer from certain limitation in terms of speed and our brains are not capable of accurately recognizing fast-moving objects. That’s why things in motion appear as a blur to us, and on slower cameras. With the right equipment however, we can unlock worlds that have been right in front of us all along.

These 25 high speed photos are but some of the more awe-inspiring shots out there! High speed photos tend to capture our imaginations because a lot of the time, we are just *really* seeing things for what they are for the very first time. Scroll down to see:
