High Speed


Making applesauce:

These photos were taken as a .22 caliber hollow point bullet tore through various fruits and vegetables. My brother, Chad, and I took these pictures in the hills near our parents home in Montana during the summer of 1999. If you ever try taking pictures like these, be sure you take along plenty of plastic to cover your gear from all of the flying fruit juices.

The following photos were taken by holing the shutter open as firecrackers exploded.

A sound trigger was used to activate the flash just as the balloon was opening up. These represent my first attempts in high speed photography.

Milk Drops:

These images were taken during Christams 2000 in Cd. Juarez Mexico. A laser pointer and photo transistor were used as a trigger system, and a simple delay circuit provided the correct timing to trigger the flash at various states during the deformation of the milk drop
