High Speed Photography Catches Bullets In Flight

This guy’s photography skills are high speed low drag:



The guy who took the pictures is from Finland and his name is Herra Kuulapaa.  There are lots more pictures of bullets leaving the barrels of other guns over on his website.  The Guy Fawkes mask is a nice touch for anonymity.

High speed photography sure looks awesome, but it also looks like a lot of work… that’s why I’ll leave it to the pros who already have all the equipment.

I always knew shooting was a dirty sport just by how filthy my hands get after a few hours at the range.  You really don’t realize how much crap besides the bullet actually comes out of the barrel until you see high speed photographs or video.  No wonder indoor ranges have to be so well ventilated!

Those pictures are art if you ask me.  Mad respect due for capturing the .50 AE from a Deagle brand Deagle.

  1. Nice mask, now all he needs is a fedora, a neckbeard and a Alex Jones subscription.

    Anyways, nice photography.

    Thanks for the share.

  2. Cool pics. Never thought that there would be that much un-burnt powder ahead of the bullet.

    I’m sure there would be much less unburnt powder if that was the 10 inch barrel desert eagle.
    Also, he’s probably using air gap flash photography system, which unless he’s richer than hell, he’s built himself, which is insanely dangerous and VERY easy to accidentally kill yourself with.

    Thanks for posting this and the link, there were a lot more great pics on his page. I think he should fly to the US and do a shoot with Richard Ryan, 22Plinkster, and Destin from Smarter Every Day. That would have to end with some insane highspeed footage and great shots.
