After reading about high speed photography in a magazine I was inspired to dig through my closet and see what I could come up with. I used a home made make-screen to trigger the flash while my digital camera was waiting with the shutter wide open.
It looks like I just stuck the screwdriver into the carpet, but I dropped it onto the makescreen. The second picture is of an airsoft pellet going through the makescreen.
Step 1: Tools and Materials
aluminum foil (Thinner the better)
airsoft gun (at least thats what I used)
The great thing about this project is the low costs involved. I went to a photo finishing place and asked if they would give me the leftovers and they happily gave me three.
I wanted the thinest aluminum foil available, so I picked up the foil and the wax paper at the dollar store.
