Photo Grandpa!

Old people, they are cunning and resourceful. Take this retired gentleman from Belgium. Going under the moniker fotoopa (“photo grandpa” in Dutch), he uses a complex laser-triggered camera rig (that he built himself) to take high-speed pictures. During the winter fotoopa takes photos of water figures indoors and during the summers, he is outside snapping up insects in mid-flight.

The combination of mechanics, electronics, and photography produces the most amazing results. Check out some of his work after the jump.

See more of fotoopa’s images on Flickr.
