As a Digital Communications major who’s dabbled in photography, one of my favorite things to see on an album cover is a really great photograph. I also have always loved the look of high speed photography. Album art featuring high-speed photos are usually pretty far and few between but recently I’ve noticed a few examples of these shots which use quick shutter speed to seemingly freeze time.
High-speed photos are used to capture extremely fast phenomena like a water droplet, something bursting apart, or a person whipping their hair back and forth. I’ve collected my favorite high-speed cover art below and you can download an MP3 from the preceding albums. Let me know if you have any more examples of high-speed photography in album art.
