As a microscopist, I like to look at small things. This also extends to my pastime, where I do
macro photography. I'm always trying to get interesting subjects for macro and getting better and
higher magnification optics. test.

UV & IR photography
Using a camera without internal filters opens up photography with
wavelengths invisible to the human eye. UV photography allows for unique portrait
as well as revealing UV patterning in biology. Infrared photography renders foliage a
bright white, and is well suited for nature photography, architecture photography and
spectacular artificial colour. I really enjoy shooting with my DIY modified full spectrum camera,
and maybe my images will get you interested in full spectrum photography!
I keep Physarum Polycephalum (a slime mold) around as pet of sorts. This facinating organism
makes a great timelapse and macro subject. As someone interested in cell biology, there is a lot of
interesting organisation in this cell on a molecular level. This organism is also easy to keep and
fun to experiment with for people new to biology so I recommend reading up on it! The forum linked
below is a great place to start.
For various projects I try to do some design work. Some examples can be found in my academic project covers, the occasional poster design and the odd bit of lettering.
I also do very amateurish web design. Most projects never really make it past the initial development phase, but if you have a cool idea for a small web page involving some special graphics you can send me a message.
