X-ray Image of a Nikon Photographer

Photographer Nick Veasey created this amazing X-ray image of a Nikon photographer for the Focus on Imaging 2010 catalog cover. It’s a composite, with the image of the camera itself requiring 12 separate X-rays.

Here’s a behind-the-scenes video that gives a glimpse into how it was made:

    To the camera or to the person?

  • Alex Braman

    poor  camera

  • Jostein Roalkvam

    Why does people with vertical grips never use it properly? It’s so awkward holding the camera with the “horizontal grip” when composing vertically…

  • braiden saylor

    As a photographer and an x-ray technologist this is the perfect picture for me. If only it were Canon because I shoot Canon Cameras and use Canon X-ray plates at work.

    So it was just a fake. Ok.

  • Sebastián Soto

    He looks happy.

  • Evo_1092

    Yeah. xray doses should be as low as reasonably achievable.. but these pics are great!
