Assuming only basic knowledge of how to use an optical (light) microscope, this text describes how to record images viewed through a microscope. The volume's six chapters cover basic photomicrography; microscopy; special optical techniques, including dark ground microscopy, polarization, phase contrast, DIC, fluorescence microscopy, infrared and ultraviolet microscopy, and stereomicroscopy; advanced photomicrography; materials and processing; and appendices which address the care and maintenance of equipment, troubleshooting, and exercises. B&w photographs, charts, and drawings.Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR
This beautifully illustrated book describes how to record images viewed through a microscope. Dealing with the principles and practice of photomicrography, it is written for all who take photomicrographs, whether beginners or more experienced practitioners. The book describes techniques which may be applied to many disciplines for teaching, research, archives, or pleasure. Techniques for the improvement of contrast are covered in considerable detail. Besides standard photography, the book describes modern digital techniques and there is also a short chapter on drawing. In addition to its value as a work of reference, the authors' clear, didactic style makes this book suitable as a textbook for courses in photomicrography and/or elementary light microscopy.
