Insect photographer This amazing hacker builds a camera (with its own custom built shutter) setup to photograph flying insects in his garden. I notice that he's got a Nikon camera with a 200mm lens and double flashlights.

To be honest I didn't read all of the text but by taking a step back and being just impressed with his willpower you get more impressed with his effort rather than the photos he produces. Yes, the sample photos are truely amazing.

I wonder if this has ever been done before? Taking pictures of sitting insects is one thing, but insects in flight I for one have never seen before.

Keep up the good work Frans!

Hello
My name is Maya and I am from Nomad Travel. I am currently working on repackaging and merchandising our bugproof range of insect repellents and mosi nets. I was searching for an image of a mosquito on google and came across your website. I was wondering if you had an high resolution image of a mosquito adn if so would there any way we could use that image for our packaging and upcoming catalogue. We would give you full publication and a mention of the photographers name on our website and possibly in our catalogue. Please get back to me as soon as possible to let me know what you think.
Yours sincerely,
Maya

Hi

I was trying to find the sight about the guy in the photo in your blog. Your links are no longer active. Do you have a lead? Do you know his full name or where he is from? Thanks!
