H.M. Smid (Photographer)

Research output: Non-textual formDigital or Visual Products


Entomologist Hans Smid has long since earned his stripes as an insect photographer, but in a new project he has now produced even sharper images of these animals. He selected 25 different insects and photographed them all thousands of times with the same camera settings, moving the camera slightly all the time. He then ‘piled up’ these photos until he got one complete sharp image. The new images, including this one of the honeybee, are on Wageningen Academic Publishers’ public e-learning website, and thanks to ‘rotary view’, they can be seen online. The photo gallery is an extra to go with the new book written by Smid’s colleague Arnold van Huis: Insects as food and feed, from production to consumption.
