Neat photo - but it's a photoshop.

Look at the bottom of her hand. It's masked too cleanly. Same with the knuckle on her pinkie.

BB and bad PS

It could easily be a PS - though I doubt it.

Its easy enough to set this up and minimize the risk to the hand model holding item.

The sharp edges in the photo are likely the edges of the black backdrops in the studio.

Don't think it is a photoshop job. What you call a clean mask is just going to black behind her hand.
The only way to catch that photo is a high speed camera, or a dark room with an open shutter camera and a high power flash timed with whatever fired.
If you look the light reflected off the cherry tomato is the same as the one in the finger nail. In addition the shadows match from the hand and the tomato.
As to what is being shot, I don't know.

Wish I could have talked the ex into trying that. Heh, heh, heh...

No. The bullet is standing still and she is hitting it with the tomato. She's very quick.

Yes she is.

Photographers have been doing this kind of stunt for years (Google harold Edgerton if you feel like it) with stroboscopic equipment, and well before there was such a thing as Image Editing software (Or personal computers for that matter).

It's only a .177 cal pellet anyway, no women were harmed in the creation of this image.

Plenty of other imges in that guys gallery that clearly show that she's holding something while it's being shot through (Light direction, ambient color reflection etc...)

Uh, I do not think it is photooshop. You guys are pretty quick on the trigger...did you look at the other pics?

Must have been an Ar-15 pellet gun because in the pic with the exploding strawberry the pellet is clearly sideways therefore its tumbling which is why it did such catastrophic damage to the Strawberry. If that woman had been holding that Strawbeery when the tumbling bullet hit it I am sure she would been killed instantly!

I don't know why you would so easily assume that it had to be photoshopped; doing it for real would probably be faster+easier than photoshopping it all.
-----

I got into a discussion on another board about some lady magician.
She does a stage trick where she puts a metal cup in her mouth, and stands on one side of a piece of window glass on stage and an assistant shoots a "bullet" into the cup in her mouth. The glass breaks as the gun is fired. In the TV show that showed this, she does a fake "faint", and then shows the bullet falling out of the cup. The bullet afterwards looks like a lead unjacketed 22LR bullet with its nose mashed over to one side.
....
Other people (who were not very familiar with firearms) went to all sorts of wild posibilities of how this all could be faked onstage--but quite honestly, it doesn't have to be. The rifle is a 22LR target rifle shot off a support/tripod, the bullet could be a short-load in a full-length case and you could certainly aim and hit within a 1/2" circle with such a gun at a distance of fifteen feet. It's certainly not the safest hobby, but it's not hardly impossible.

I tried exmplaining that if you had a baseball catcher's mitt on, you could probably "catch" the 22-short bullet without hurting your hand--and some people (most of who had little-to-no experience with "playing" with guns) simply refused to believe it was possible. Too much TV, not enough trigger time is all I could guess....
