Usually we try and look our best when we get our portraits taken, but how can one look good while being stunned with a taser seconds before the shutter snaps? Photographer Patrick Hall worked his charms to get volunteers to have their portraits taken just like that. After being stunned. With 300,00 Volts. By a significant other.
While the portraits are interesting as whole, the experience is worth noting as well. Patrick shares:
Each person was tazed by their friend or significant other which created an interesting dynamic in itself. The emotions on both sides of the taser were extremely entertaining to watch. The person getting tazed was almost always nervous and jittery with either a sense of fear or anxiety. The participants doing the tazing had a different demeanor altogether. Most of them were excited to cause pain to their friend and only showed remorse immediately after executing the shock.
Patrick shares that he was tazed some 15 times before the protect was over
