Microscopy


Microscopy is using microscopes to view samples or object that are otherwise unseen by the human eye. This is my favorite type of scientific photography. I could spend all day in a lab creating different microscopic slides and photographing the unseen microscopic world. I use the technique of polarizing light to increases contrast and bring out the color variations in each specimen. The most common way to increase contrast is to stain the different structures with selective dyes this can create artificial colors. I hope you enjoy this collection of colorful abstract microscopy photography.
