Finnish photographer Herra Kuulapaa captured stunning high-speed ballistic photos.
Kuulapaa used multiple cameras to simultaneously capture single images. He combined the photos to create a super high-resolution stereoscopic 3D effect, Daily Mail reports.
“To create the images we detect an ignition of poweder and we then calculate when the bullet is in right place and set up a delay to trigger that takes the photo,” Kuulapaa explained. “There is a lot of sweat and tries before the small details are fine tuned.”
Though the photos are beautiful, it’s not all about art. Kuulapaa started capturing amateur shooters seven years ago, but when gun manufactures caught wind of his talents, they asked him for help.
“The sports shooting community all over the world was hungry for information about what happens during the brief split millisecond moment when bullet actually leaves the barrel,” Kuulapaa said.
