Alan Sailer was an obscure photographer working in his garage in Camarillo, United States, shooting stuff with a pellet rifle and photographing the results with a home built flash. Then in early 2009, someone linked one of his pictures to a social networking site. Soon he was flooded with emails from magazines and newspapers pressing for interviews.
“Now I'm a slightly less obscure photographer,” says Alan Sailer.
Here is a collection of some of his very colorful high-speed photographs. Catch the rest on Flickr.
