I took these at a Cowboy Action competition shoot. OK nothing fantastic about these two shots except incredibly lucky timing. When a cartridge discharges you get a brief muzzle blast and flame out of the cylinder gap. Catching the flash is purely luck. I got incredibly lucky with the following two sequential shots.

Does he cross over for each shot or does he aim with both eyes?

In any case, cool shot to catch that blast at the cylinder gap.

Even then, i'd say youd have to pan for it for it to look solid - I'd venture a guess and say it would be possible to catch it without... Anyone wanna try? :D


A few bodies and lenses..

I wonder if a 1D classic would be able to freeze the bullet a 1/16000?

At a pretty typical pistol round velocity of 900 fps, the bullet travels about .675" in 1/16,000 of a second. Still would be a line about an inch long instead of a bullet shape.

I like the shots. Good job.

That's some good timing!

I've caught a few bullets being fired, but they are all just a line like a laser beam.

The way to get a picture of a bullet traveling out of a gun is to be sneaky: Put very little grain in the shell and it'll come out relatively slowly.

It's been done.


Thank you. bw!

Would have been good to capture some smoke and flame erupting from the business end.
