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

Here are some more photos from that shoot:

        Apart from they all weren’t… the guy specifically says in the video, guys took their tops off and the girls took them down to the shoulder or wore boob tube tops to give the IMPRESSION that they were topless so that clothing wasn’t a distraction.

        Only the men were topless, it’s a misleading title to draw in views and it worked. Shame on them.

      Technically, the men are. If you watch the behind the scenes video, he even says that the women are wearing clothes.

      topless does not mean showing breast

      I didnt say that topless meant that breasts were showing. However, saying topless implies that there is nudity to most people who would read this. Also – as I said, only the men are without shirts. The women have their shirts pulled down or are wearing tube tops.

      Also – Great PR move for your page/site. Defend your poorly titled reblog (originally shared by Fstoppers) with a random facebook user.

    He shot with the appearance of topless so that the images would not be dated to a particular period in history.

    Not talking about the headline but about the project itself.

    tasing people for any reason is inhumane, promoting it is not much better.

    Art Rule #1: If you can’t produce good art, then produce big art
    Art Rule #2: If you can’t produce good art, then make it red
    Art Rule #3: If you can’t produce good art, then at lest be controversial

    I’ll admit that immature curiosity made me take this click bate. I recently unsubscribed from another site in my RSS feeds because of ridiculous posts, never to return (If you want to post the name without editing — The site was MakeUseOf) . More posts like this from DIY Photography and I’ll do the same here. Your quality as been slipping as of late. Perhaps you are running out of good ideas to post and are desperate for material. This post has absolutely no entertainment or learning value and you need to know that this is an epic failure for the publishers of DIY Photography.

    Doesn’t matter how you twist it….it’s click bait. This isn’t even worth looking at. No worries. I know how to unsubscribe. :)

    I think topless means the subject’s head’s are not where they are supposed to be!

    aren’t tasers supposed to be painful and incapacitating?
    some of the subjects seems to be having fun…

    This is garbage, show the titties or don’t advertise it as topless.

    The photographer is an idiot who does not realize the extreme danger of what he is doing. It is a good thing that no one died.
