Microscopy / by Irene Mendez Cruz

Microscopy photography not only opens up a whole new world of artistic possibilities but it also gives access to new perspectives on the natural world. Here are some of my microscopy photographs taken with my digital Nikon D810 and either a normal or reflective microscope.  I personally collected the samples and most of the images are the result of a meticulous stacking technique.
