High-Speed Photography of Light Bulbs Exploding by Jon Smith


Chemist and photographer Jon Smith fills light bulbs with unusual objects like chalk dust, candies, sprinkles, or even beer caps, shoots the bulbs with a pellet gun, and captures the moment using high-speed photography.

People see and use light bulbs every day. They’re something we don’t pay attention to…By shooting them, having them explode, and filling them with different materials creates an interesting juxtaposition that I’m really drawn to.

More of Smith’s amazing photography is available on his Flickr page.
