Dutch photographer Lex Augusteijn is a recreational specializing in high-speed photography detaining the moment a bullet hits objects such as light bulbs, water-filled balloons and even drops of water.
The problem with these so-called high speed photos is, the bullets don’t look real. There are no lands and grooves on them, where the rifling would’ve contacted the bullet traveling through the rifle barrel. It appears that these projectiles were “shot” from an air rifle, traveling at a much lower speed than a conventional bullet. Granted, the pictures are awesome, but put into perspective, not as amazing as a capture from a real high speed bullet.
Those who can, do. Those who can’t, criticise.
Just to add to what Canicula said, the shutter on the camera may not have been fast enough to catch every minute detail of the bullet. Notice that most of them appear blurry. Probably travelling too fast for the camera’s shutter. Even high speed cameras have limitations.
High speed photos like this have nothing really to do with shutter speed. It’s the camera flash that freezes the action. You open the camera shutter in total darkness (thus no film/sensor exposed) fire the gun/water droplet etc. and use a sound/touch/laser trigger to activate the flash at the precise moment.
agree! i think the photographs are wonderful, and it is quiet hard to take.

@98310a24ac38834f3bc25efbad31a7a7:disqus , that was a pretty badass observation…
I agree with Cobra, but also, how are the light bulbs lit when they clearly aren’t connected to a circuit? Photoshopped?
One possible explanation for that observation is that there are wires contacting the back side of the bulb terminals, and are hidden from sight by the lightbulb.
The metal is still glowing hot the the circuit that was there milliseconds ago, are these serious questions?
shut the fuck up cobra
cobras right so go shit yourself or something
I’ve always been a fan of high speed photography, and I agree that these are very nice shots.
Who cares? People care way to much about how something is made when they should care about the imagination and emotions it invokes.
Except when they’ve been done before a hundred billion times. Go to deviant art sometime and look at the dates of water droplet photography and the thousands upon thousands of these type of pictures. When in doubt, drop some fruit in.
When doing high speed, take pictures of water. When bored of water droplets, change color. When bored with color, break things. When out of ideas, use guns.
where do you find a face card with an H?
We have them here in the Netherlands. I always assumed the H stood for heer, wich means lord, but I’m not sure that’s how it is.
number 7 look like a mother holding a baby. very nice shots!
Very amazing and fascinating high speed camera shots. I like how the droplet splashes look like mushroom spores.

atleast his name isn’t pooman!
“Cobra” = CUNT.
All I see are galaxies, nebulas, pulsars, quasars….
Wow! This is amazing! I wish I could buy this wonderful camera ever! I can use this in my own business!
Thanks again admin…( click my name for more details )
Those are great. I tried to do this with my Canon SD770 and the CHDK program but it didn’t turn out anywhere close to this.
