Hans + macro photography
Hans Smid, senior researcher at the Laboratory of Entomology: 'You can easily steer insects'
It is a kind of portrait photography really, says Hans Smid. Just very small-scale. Smid snaps insects, preferably at home in the studio. 'I want to get photographs in which they show their natural behaviour. I get this to happen by luring them appropriately. By distracting them, for instance, or by giving them food. That is my approach.' It certainly produces fascinating portraits. And they are for sale on www.bugsinthepicture.com.
