Just in time for the Fourth of July, Jeremiah Warren created an incredible relatively low-budget “bullet time” rig— with a 240 fps GoPro camera mounted to a ceiling fan —to photograph fireworks. He posted a full writeup showing how to build it on his web site.
The clever hack about using the GoPro on the ceiling fan is thanks to Mark Rober, who showed how to do it back in May, mostly with smaller-scale subjects. But Jeremiah has taken the idea and run with it, adapting it for larger-scale photography.
And as you can see, the results are simply fantastic.You can find more videos and the full how-to on Jeremiah’s site.
