Adult Workshop

High Speed Photography
Stroboscopic Photography


Who said you need a microscope or a telescope to see the beauty of science all around us? Join us in transforming the "mundane" into the "insane" as we learn the art of high-speed and stroboscopic photography.

To guide us through this flashy intersection of art and science, we've invited Rochester Institute of Technology's mad photographic scientist Ted Kinsman. Bring your own camera and Ted will teach you how to freeze time the instant a balloon explodes or some water splashes. A dance party never looked so good when he turns on the strobe lights and teaches us stroboscopic photography. 

Learn the techniques and leave with your own series of these specialized photographs. Blink and you'll miss it: this workshop is a one of a kind in Toronto!

Teacher Bio

Kinsman has an AS in Optics, a BS in Physics, and a MS in Science Education. He has worked as an optical engineer, a physicist, and a physics instructor before coming to RIT to teach the technical side of imaging. Ted Kinsman is one of the few active high-speed photographers able to photograph at times less than 1/1,000,000th of a second. That is faster than a speeding bullet. Recently, Kinsman’s work has expanded to the x-ray region of the spectrum where he continues to explore imagery for books and magazines. His work has appeared on The Discovery Channel, Crime Scene Investigations (CSI), The X-Files, South Park, The Tyra Banks Show, ABC, NBC, PBS, CBS and the British Broadcast Corporation. Recently, he did work on The Frozen Planet series, and James Cameron’s Avatar movie. "
