This video from Smarter Every Day shows how you can capture any gun's flame throwing abilities with precise accuracy. Using a Pulse Generator, Destin explains how he rigged his flash setup to fire at the exact moment the gun is fired. By dragging the shutter and combining the exposure with flash, the Alabama native created some pretty interesting photographs. Some even show the bullet leaving the muzzle!
Of course you need to practice extreme safety when photographing any sort of weapon, but as Destin explains in the video, you can create some pretty sick death wish photos with the simple use of a pocket wizard pre release cord. Just imagine how awesome these final images could look straight out of the camera with no photoshop if the lighting was tweaked just a bit! My head is already buzzing with themes and conceptual ideas! When is that next Carolina gun show?
Destin, if you ever want to take a vacation to Charleston, I have a cooler of beers on a boat waiting for you if you bring this setup!
