Micro Photography Taken To The Next Level [11 Pics]

We’ve written about macro photography before, which is a very similar technique to this. Looking at up close pictures of tiny objects is always fascinating since it allows us to view the world in a way we would normally not be able to see it. However, what Tomas Rak does definitely takes photography to a whole new level. Since he uses a microscope, it’s technically called micro photography.

This process blows my mind. He first finds bugs which he captures. Since he doesn’t put them in the freezer to subdue them like many photographers, he waits for just the right time to photograph them (at the end of the process he lets them go). He photographs them under a microscope, but here’s where he gets crazy creative…

These photographs each consist of up to 687 separate images which he stitches together. In other words, he photographs the bug, then he moves it 500ths of a millimeter, then he takes another picture. He does this over and over until he is able to photograph the entire bug the way he wants it. Last but not least, he uses computer editing to piece all the images together. He says that is the most time consuming part of the whole thing. His technique allows us to see the bugs in a whole new way. We can see detail we would normally never be able to see, like the hair on their body and the color of their eyes. It’s all just as clear as can be. This is truly magnificent.
