the act, or noise, of sneezing

Sternutation


Photographing a sneeze was much more difficult than I anticipated. The camera handled the the shooting just fine; however, actually sneezing on command is the tricky part. We used your basic techniques – feathers, black pepper, etc., but the most effective technique was to use a thin blade of grass. Get that blade of grass clear up your nose until you hit a “special” little spot in your sinuses. Each person that attempted this instantly sneezed. All I had to do was keep firing. Everybody was absolutely fantastic for actually attempting this.
