Stopping Time (Part 2)

Three weeks ago I posted about the amazing photography of Harold Edgerton. Unfortunately all I could find to post were photos I found through Google Images. Since I got the book last week, I’ve been able to scan some of the photos that are more resourceful to animators. Edgerton came up in a class on Squash and Stretch, one of the principles of animation. The point was to illustrate that everything squashes and stretches, which Edgerton’s photos below clearly show. There’s also some multiple-exposure shots for motion reference. I’d recommend buying a copy if you can afford it. Click images for larger versions.
