What do you get when you mix a pellet rifle, a basement, ingenuity & frozen strawberries?
Well, if you’re Alan Sailer you create some truly brilliant and startlingly beautiful photographs. Blasting and exploding anything from fruit to christmas decorations to chocolate bunnies, he captured their intimate moments of self destruction using a microsecond spark flash.
Amusingly enough he advises caution if you’re contemplating on building your own, simply stating “If you do decide to try and build a flash from this information, please be careful. The main storage capacitor is pure death.”
But with results like these, surely it’s worth the risk?
He has over 1,000 images like those featured below on his Flickr page, all rich in tone, bold in colour & mischievous in their execution – so go check it out and add him as a friend!
