everybody loves bubbles

Although the still images you can capture under a microscope are very powerfull, I always try to get some movement into the frame:) Those are my first tests that involve some random movement. Enjoy:

Dissecting flowers

Today I got some flowers in order to search for some nice looking pollen. I should have probably checked which species have interesting pollen shapes, because I only found boring, rounded shapes. Luckily flowers also have other parts, so there you are, a few pictures:

epidermis of a tulip petal

epidermis of a hyacinth petal with visible stoma here and there and some air bubbles

and last comes my personal favourite. I'm not sure what it is, probably some floral part, found in honey.

I want to use what's left of the flowers to learn how to make stack images. More pictures soon:)

The microscope and animation

This is my first year's project at filmschool - an animated short inspired by the micro-world. At first I wanted to include real footage of the little creatures.  Finally I decided to represent them in a larger scale and give them the life I wanted for them.

Not-so-advaced lighting techniques:)

Checking out the possibilities of my microscope, and trying to make dark field pictures by putting black paper in various places of the condensor I got this. It's not quite dark field, but the result is interesting:

First attempts at microphotography

I finally bought a microscope and spent the last few days looking every single thing I found in my room trough it. Here are some of the pictures I made:
