When Hasselblad recently announced their new H6D 50MP and 100MP cameras, one of the lucky photographers they had to help them shoot promotional images for the launch campaign and to test out the H6D’s capabilities was Karl Taylor.

While the results of this shoot have spread across the world over the last couple of weeks, Karl now presents us with a behind the scenes look into how the images were created.

Karl also posted a second video going a little deeper into the capabilities of the Hasselblad H6D camera.

Even if the Hasselblad H6D is a little out of your budget, the videos do present some useful tips to get you thinking a little more about how you can make otherwise static objects move and come alive in front of the camera.

Karl’s goes into more detail on the equipment used, as well as how the slides were built for launching the paint into the air, which you can read about over on his blog, and you can find out more about the H6D on the Hasselblad website.

It certainly makes for some very cool and impressive results, although I’m not sure I’d want to be the one who had to clean up afterwards!
