Two Canadian photographers, Peter Andrew and Derek Blais, have come up with a pretty awesome project. For their Point Blank Project, the two have been photographing a wide variety of handguns and turning them into really cool pieces of art after being inspired by the work of Robert Longo. All the shots are taken in similar style–on a clean white background, barrel pointing at the camera. But, what really makes the photos stand out is how detailed the images are.
In a recent interview (which you can watch in the video below), the photographers revealed they use focus stacking to create the highly detailed photos. When all is said and done, a single one of their finished images can sometimes consist of 60-80 frames–all perfectly blended in post.
The project is represented by Station 16 Gallery in Canada with plans of bringing the collection to an international audience in the near future, so be sure to stay on the lookout!
Meanwhile, let’s take a look at that video and some samples from the collection.
