My photographic concentration is in Ophthalmic Photography and the classes I have taken are graphic design, digital media, scientific photography, non-conventional imaging, web design, surgical photography, and ophthalmic photography. I aspire to be an Ophthalmic Photographer when I graduate in May 2015. The main reason why I want to go into this field is because I feel that in some way, I want to help the patients through the process, build a rapport with them, and be a support system for them.
The following images show a pharmaceutical drug and were taken using a polarized light microscope. The drug was crushed up, put onto a microscope slide with water, and then left overnight to allow birefringent crystals to form. The polarized light microscope forces light to vibrate in one direction, which only lets the light that vibrated along the polarizing axis to pass through it completely. This reveals these crystals that cannot be seen by the human eye!
