Pellet Portraits



Photographer Alan Sailer creates these amazing images by shooting various Jello filled objects with a pellet rifle and capturing the results with a high speed flash. The Jello filling holds the fragile outer shell together for a fraction of a second longer and the Jello itself really shows off the transfer of force from the air gun bullet to the object being fired upon. Alan says, "The shooting is stressful. It takes time to set up the shot and then, it’s all over. You may or may not have got a good picture and now there is a mess on your set-up, your camera and in the garage.”
