Microscopic Images

This gallery contains a preview of some of my images, some finished and some, a work in progress. These images are, for the most part, mosaics of scanning electron microscope (SEM) images (micrographs) which have been assembled into single images and subsequently colourised based on their true colours. Before scanning or ‘photographing’ on the electron microscope, the subjects were photographed close up so that a true representation of the colours could be transposed to the final SEM images. The Herb Robert (Geranium robertium) image is the result of 3 months of work and is a composite of 79 images stitched in x, y and z. Despite the Japanese ivy leaf consisting of 120 individual images, this image did not require as much time to process, taking about 2 weeks.

You can see more of my images on my flickr and behance galleries.
