Photographer tasered his subjects for art, says his results are 'pretty hilarious'

The pain.

PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHERS ARE always trying to make people feel as comfortable as possible but this ‘jolting’ photoshoot aims to do the complete opposite.

Hall has edited two videos and produced a varying range of emotionally-charged close up shots of his subjects’ reactions.
