Stacking Microscope Photography

A series of images are shot at various focus depths, then stacked together with software to create a final image with much greater depth of field than traditional close-up photography.

I use a home-built, automated microsope (see the image in the Miscellaneous gallery) for photographing larger objects like insects, or a regular microscope focused manually for smaller subjects.

Most shots are at 5X, 10X, or 20X magnification, using brightfield or darkfield illumination.

Look, you probably just don't want to know what some of this stuff is. Just enjoy the images, and don't think too much about what they are, OK?
