Photographing Flying Insects

Unread postby DuQues » Wed May 18, 2005 5:02 pm

I stumbled over this little website: Foto Opa.
This opa has created a contruction for photographing flying insects you would not believe... using lasers, a 1950 era shutter, digital cam etc.
It is a fun read, especially if you understand a bit about shuttertime and -lag.
Try it myself? I don't think so, but the results are great!
Arriving currently: The photos from our trip! Overhere! :yaya:
