When Alan Sailer photographs images of everyday objects, he uses his camera and his pellet gun. That's because he is using a very quick flash to record the exact moment when he fires a pellet at the objects.
"My high-speed work is only unusual in that you don't see much work done at the very fast flash speed I use," Sailer told Astrum People. "So I have some idea of how to go about making things look interesting."
Sailer's photographs show the beauty in seeing an object explode. Here are 17 of Sailer's photographs that you have to see to believe:
