This latest photographic project has been possible due to my stint student teaching 7th and 8th grade science, specifically my unit on cell biology. I have access to an AverVision document viewer with a microscope adapter where I can photograph what the microscope sees. The resolution on these is too low for print, but I’ve already started looking into other methods of micro-photography.
Dog bowl water containing dog mouth cells and bacterial cells
Onion cells and nuclei with iodine stain
Potato cells and plastids with iodine stain
Red Pepper cells and nuclei
Yogurt live cultures (bacterial cells)
I have 2 weeks of access to the microscope, any suggestions for what to examine next?
