London-based photographer Edward Horsford has mastered the technique of timing in these photographs that feature split-second water balloon explosions. He is well known for this exciting series, and he says, “I started these as a way to challenge myself technically and creatively.” Wow, he has had great success with his self-initiated challenge!
Horsford’s goal in photography is to capture high speed moments that are rarely seen. Focusing on a solid background, his own hand, and a colorful water balloon, he perfectly times the moments when each rubber balloon breaks and a spray of water floats in the air before quickly flooding to the ground.
