Photomicrography

 

 

My interest in photographing inclusions in gemstones, crystals and minerals was born when using the microscope to identify gemstones. My first attempts at capturing what I saw through the microscope was done during the mid 80's. By then I used dia positive 135 film and a home made adapter fitting over the ocular tube.

 

The years went by and in the late 90's I stopped working professionally as gemologist and gem cutter and got into the IT business where I still reside professionally.

 

I never gave up the interest in gemstones and gemology completely and have kept many cut and rough stones even if most of the collection was scattered.

 

In 2008 I got a cheap Microscope and built a new adapter. This time for the digital camera. From there it has evolved and still does. Much thanks to new friends found at Gemology Online.
