and show me some examples if you have them
I'd assume it's like a strobe light at a club. Basically tricking the eye to see things stop in time. Get a fan, turn it on and try to take a pic of it. The fan blades will be blurred/in motion. Turn the flash on and take the pic again and the blades will "stop in time."
a strobe will do what alverino03 said, but if you meant stroboscopic, it does things like this:
so to do these so called stroboscopic pictures we'd need a special flash mount that repeatedly flashes or what? I bet it would be real fun to mess around with stroboscopic pictures, but im guessing the attachment costs a lot.
guess i need to mess with the mhz it runs at to see how it turns out
i'd guess (i have no idea) that most of the middle of the pack and up flashes do it, i know mine does, and it is fun to play with. to do stuff like the guy moving his arms, or the ball even, im sure you'd need a seperate unit that can put out that much light quick enough
I see, thanks for the info, I'll look into it more.
?...how was this effect achived?
Someone running with a light, waving it over the car?
A strobe would show the person holding the light....If someone is holding that light then it would mean they must be turning it off and on.
Incorrect, someone was indeed holding the light.
8 second exposure, strobe pointing at camera and person holding strobe standing BEHIND the strobe, therefore not catching any light from it (the strobe is being held over the roof of the vehicle so there was no reflection back off the vehicle either). Over the 8 seconds, the person walked along and traced the body shape of the car.
Eitherway it doesn't look good..
Oh, yes, you're absolutely right. It's completely different to an example of a pic using a strobing flash.
It might not be what people automatically think of when someone mentions stroboscopic flash use, but it's certainly still an example of use of a strobing flash.
