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!
