Every once in a while I come across something that is truly impressive, something that makes me think the sky’s the limit as far as photographic creativity goes. You know what I’m talking about – images that are completely different than anything you’ve seen before and they leave you thinking, “WOW!!”
Recently, a friend sent me a link to an article about Robert Buelteman’s images of electrocuted flowers. Eh? Electrocuted flower?! What’s that? It’s kind of hard to explain. I’ll leave the technical description to the following article in AmusingPlant.com, about Buelteman’s imaging making. But suffice it to say it’s REALLY COOL! Essentially what he does is run 80,000 volts through a plant placed on colour film. After a brief blast of electricity, he develops the film. And voila! Funky, cool, impressive, unique WOW images!
Here’s a sampling from the Amusing Planet article:
Now are these incredible, or what? I’d love to have one of his images hanging on my wall.
