Focus Stacking System For Gametophyte Ferns #celebratephotography

NewImage

Wow – fanstastic work from Jennifer Deegan on Hackster.io:

The aim of this project is to home-build a microscope capable of photographing gametophyte ferns. The style of photography aims to produce attractive images of the sort that might normally be seen on the front of Gardeners’ World Magazine, or similar.

The technique to be used is called focus stacking and Jennifer Deegan has already worked extensively on developing a system. She has taken a fairly good photograph of a gametophyte fern, using a set up that relies on a modified flatbed scanner (image below). For a full understanding of focus stacking please refer to the flatbed scanner introduction page. The aim of this current project is to significantly improve on that first image.

This project is a collaboration between many people. The principles of the design came from the forum members at http://www.photomacrography.net/. The design is particularly based on the Bratcam, by Chris Slaybaugh. The focus block was provided as a gift by one of the forum members (Doc.Al). Some of the electronics and programming, and some of the fitting together were carried out by Tim Deegan. He also helped with the principles of the design. Jennifer Deegan did everything else.

We #celebratephotography here at Adafruit every Saturday. From photographers of all levels to projects you have made or those that inspire you to make, we’re on it! Got a tip? Well, send it in!

If you’re interested in making your own project and need some gear, we’ve got you covered. Be sure to check out our Raspberry Pi accessories and our DIY cameras.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
