high-speed photography

[′hī ‚spēd fə′täg·rə·fē]
(graphic arts)
Photography to record movement or events that occur too quickly to be observed by usual visual or photographic means; motion pictures may be shot at high speeds (50-500 frames per second) and projected at normal rates, so that the action of the subject is slowed to a point where it can be observed; or a series of individual still photos may be produced.

Later, leaf, drop, and focal plane shutters and more light sensitive ("faster") emulsions made it possible to stop movement, and the development of strobe and flash techniques opened up the world of high speed photography, permitting observation of phenomena which occurred at speeds beyond the range of perception of the human eye.
