Microphotography is an art, but it also captures elements of biology, physiology, and the other sciences. Essentially, it involves photographing objects at the microscopic level. This is exciting because it allows you and others to see the world from an entirely new perspective.

To get started in microphotography, all you need is a microscope and a camera. You should try to find a camera that has a small lens, which is about the same size as the viewing lens on your microscope. In some cases, you can buy a special adapter to get your camera to fit perfectly over your microscope, but these setups can be expensive. If you have a microscope that can connect to your computer, that will also work very well. I personally use a cheap Kodak digital camera and simply place it over the microscope, adjusting the position slightly to get a good angle.
