Alan Sailer, 54, is a photographer based in California. He is an expert in high-speed photography. You can see a lot of high-speed photography now on the Internet, but I must say this series is by far my favorite, it’s very colorful and the shots are just amazing.

He works in a dark room with his camera positioned around 20cm from the target. The camera has a unique home-made flash set at a one-second delay. He says the flash is about 5 microseconds in duration and runs at 17.000 volts, so it’s quite dangerous. The flash is triggered when the pellet from a rifle passes through a laser beam, so everything is calculated for the flash to be triggered at the perfect time, when the pellet hits the target.
