The equipment used for these photographs included a sound trigger, a BB gun, a delay unit, and, of course, camera and flash. The unique method of preparing the marshmallows is described with the photos.
Using a BB gun for photographs such as these should only be attempted with adult supervision.
Richard credits Carl Leitner, Margo Siemer, and Ofri Z. for their indispensable help in making the photographs.
Richard graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the spring of '98. Prior to that, he was a student at the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics.
