Flash as shutter speed in high speed photography
8 months ago

I recently heard of the technique for high speed photography where you use a quick flash as your only light source, essentially making the flash speed the shutter speed.  If the actual shutter speed is too slow, like two seconds, then wouldn't the image be too dark?  If the flash is, for example, 1/10000 of a second, then over 99% of the time the camera will be capturing complete darkness.  How does this not ruin the picture?
