Indiana-based photographer Jon Smith invites everyone to the fascinating world of high speed photography with his colorful series of exploding light bulbs. Jon fills them with various objects such as feathers, beads, candies, beer caps or layered sand, and the shoots them making everything explode.

“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,” says Jon, also known as WideEyedIlluminations.
