Hello Nina!

I have discussed several times with my fellow microbiologist about our idea to produce a very basic book(let) of paper industry microbiology, containing also microphotographs.

This friend of mine has been a very experienced photographer for years and understand very well the various problems which a starting microphotographer may have to solve. We both also share the same opinion: the final picture shall be as informative as possible and this fact includes the similarity of visual (by the observer's eye, through the oculare) and digitalized view. There are some very interesting issues concerning the way our eyes and mind work (by ignoring some details etc.). Optical results may also differ between "oculöar" and "camera" because factors like depth of field, exact sharpness etc.

The most difficult thing, however, are usually the colours: how many adjustments are needed to have a microphotograph where all shades of staining (Gram, fluorescence etc.) are correct and tell to any observer of the photos, what we have detected?

New digi cameras are very effective tools, compared with older ones. Brightness is no more a problem, however we sometimes have to work with very low light intensities - especially when fluorescence of stained microbes on solid, non-fluorescent surfaces will be observed in biofilm research. In opposite, the manifold of programs, delivered with different cameras, is a confusing and irritating fact and it takes time to optimize all installations of a new program.

- These were just some (professional) ideas about digi photography which I just now have in my head. Please comment them! It would also be nice to hear if you have got any experiences on the area of micro/macrophotography!

Det vore trevligt om jag får lov att använda mitt svenska Det är ganska enkelt, tyväär, men om man kan inte öva språket, man kan glömma allt det som man har lärt! Så ber jag tålamod, om jag kanske skriver också på svenska...

Juha, here is a group that could provide very practical support to projects. Nina Sederholm will tell more about photo, video and websites. The students are searching for companies where they could get practical experience. Nina tells about the zero costs and rules. There are talented, young and passionate content producers.
