Falling coins Photograph

Image © Awais Yaqub
As soon as i posted this picture on my facebook page and website, some people asked me how i captured this falling coins shot. Actually they are not falling, they are just bouncing on piece of white paper.

How to get such vibration? simple, just place white paper on subwoofer and play some low frequency music (U2's with or without you in this case)

Technical Details:
Used Canon EOS-7D, AI Servo focus fixed to central part.
100mm f2.8 macro lens
Off camera 580ex2 fired from left with Lumiquest softbox
Shutter was around 1/200 and aperture f/8
