This item is a tutorial on the topic of photomicrography, the use of photography to capture images in a microscope.  It addresses photomicrography techniques using both film and digital imaging systems.  Included is information on filters, staining, contrast, and exposure, plus tips on microscope configuration to achieve optimal resolution.  

Links are provided to more than 20 related interactive Java simulations.  This item is part of a larger collection of materials on optics and microscopy developed by the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory and Florida State University.

Please note that this resource requires Java.
