High speed bass strings

Added on by Tom Cramond.

Using a high shutter speed on a Canon 5D MkII user urbanscreen managed to capture the amazing vibrations of a double basses strings.

Basically, the shutter speed of the camera (say 1/2000 of a second) has matched itself perfectly with the frequency of the strings vibrations to create this amazing effect. This is not slow motion, just what the strings would look like if you could freeze time!
