High speed photography techniques. The room should be dark and the shutter is open for one second. During this second, flash is triggered to freeze the action. The flash is set to the minimum power to reduce duration of flash which means better action freezing. To trigger the flash at the right moment you can trigger it manually or using sensors. In this shot, I twirled the glass around its base and this caused the water inside to form this arch.
