Rangefinder magazine has an article up entitled “Pushing the Limits with Light and Speed,” featuring dance photographer Sarah Silver and Chris Garrison. We’ve posted about Chris’ work with HyperSync® a number of times, but this is the first we’ve heard of Sarah’s unique style.

Sarah uses a slow shutter speed and strobes with a short flash duration, triggered by PocketWizard Plus® III’s, to visually represent the powerful and dramatic movements of her dancer subjects.

Rangefinder writes of her work, “Whether she’s photographing dancers frozen in a firestorm of water or a Muybridge-esque running sequence for Nike, Silver’s lighting, timing and vision are spot-on at capturing exciting images at the peak of the moment.”
