“People see and use light bulbs every day. They’re something we don’t pay attention to. By shooting them, having them explode and filling them with different materials creates an interesting juxtaposition that I’m really drawn to.” – Jon Smith
Chemist and photographer Jonathan Smith is known especially for his amazing project “High Speed Photography”. He fills light bulbs with unusual objects, shoot them with a pellet gun and capture the beautiful effects using high-speed photography.
Using items and substances like chalk dust, sprinkles, candies, ball bearings, beer caps and even flowers, Smith creates beautiful images using high-speed photography.
