A painting can tell a million stories. With every click of the camera and the captured image, we tell stories and capture moments that will continue to live on in the photo. The wonders of microphotography is a new and unique method that opens the way for us to get acquainted with hitherto unknown microscopic organisms.
Microphotography - photographing enlarged images of microscopic objects using the optical system of a light microscope. With the help of a microscope, small and bizarre animals come to life in front of our eyes, multi-colored structures of various investigated substances are revealed.
The first to see the unexplored world of microorganisms was the Dutch naturalist and microscope designer Anthony van Leeuwenhoek, the "father of microbiology", who designed about 400 types of microscopes. He saw that all the animals and bacteria that he examined live in an enchanting world and may even sometimes look just adorable. Over the years, photographers continue and continue to explore and discover new sides and boundaries of the microcosm.
For several years now, the Olympus BioScapes Digital Imaging Competition has provided the world with the most intricate and complex microcosm that exists next to us. Photos taken with microscopes, various light filters, ultrasensitive cameras show us a world that we never imagined to see in such light.
The Small World Contest is also held annually to showcase “the beauty and complexity of life that we contemplate through a microscope.” The winner by public vote was a microphotograph of a chicken embryo taken by Tomas Pais de Azeved, a biology student from Lisbon, Portugal. … Voters chose the photo of Pais de Azevedo from 115 finalists. His work became the best photograph of 2008.
The bright fibers of the diatom algae are visible when photographed. The photograph belongs to the British Michael Stringer, who specializes in photographing microscopic objects.
Margaret Oechslі presented us with a landscape of medicines. Viewed through a polarizing filter, the antibiotic mitomycin powder flashed in different colors, revealing its intricate crystal sculpture.
By mixing resorcinol, methylene blue and sulfur, photomicrograph chemist John Hart from the University of Colorado obtained a crystalline structure that looks charming under a microscope.
A talented person is talented in everything. And he's not afraid to push beyond possibilities that ordinary people won't even see. This is what director Elohim Sanchez did. Making films of his broad personality was not enough - and he discovered the talent of an artist. And he didn't just discover: his abstract paintings are a bold attempt to create his own "ideal" material world
In our review, we have collected an incredible series of photographs that reveal an amazing world “under the microscope”, where the most ordinary things, such as flowers and food, take on a different image. When you look at the pictures, you get the feeling that fabulous worlds and unknown spaces come to life: plants become mystical creatures, and banal toasts, granulated sugar or coffee - magnificent unearthly landscapes
A small country that is always next to us is not pink elves and flower-candy palaces. No - this is an amazing space in which gravity disappears, water becomes elastic, like a sofa, the thinnest capillaries of fingers turn into a mysterious forest, and the flight of dust particles resembles a dancing ensemble of worlds. Among others, two are engaged in the discovery of this world for us - the Japanese photographer Susumu Nishinaga and his trusty microscope
The world under the microscope. The best works of the participants of the "Nikon Small World Competition"
Contests in the world of photography are always interesting, because thanks to them we get the opportunity to see truly professional, high-quality and creative pictures. And the Small World competition, held annually by Nikon, also allows us to see what in ordinary life we cannot see at all. We present to your attention the best works of photographic art of 2010, made with a microscope
The popularity of the American Kenneth Libbrecht all over the world was brought about by winter, or rather by such a necessary attribute as snow. The epigraph to his work is the words of Henry David Thoreau: “The air in which they arise is filled with creative genius. I would hardly have admired more, even if real stars had fallen on my coat”. Guess what this is about? Right. About snowflakes
