Practical Digital Photomicrography is an introduction to digital photography through the microscope in which readers will learn about the techniques and equipment needed to obtain high-quality images of biological subjects. Author Dr. Brian Matsumoto received his Ph.D. in Anatomy and Cell Biology from the University of California at Los Angeles in 1981. He served as the Director of the Integrated Microscopy Facility in the Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology at the University of California, Santa Barbara from 1992 through 2009, where he taught a graduate level course in digital microscopy.

Leveraging his decades of experience, Brian demystifies photomicrography basics such as microscope and camera concepts, illumination techniques, specimen preparation, photographic techniques, advanced optical techniques, and image post-processing. Abundant illustrations will guide the reader through these topics.

About the Author

In 1981, Dr. Brian Matsumoto received his Ph.D. in Anatomy and Cell Biology from the University of California at Los Angeles. His research required the development and refinement of techniques for transmission electron microscopy and light microscopy. These tools were used to study the role of actin and microtubules in photoreceptor membrane transport and assembly. In 1992, Dr. Matsumoto was appointed Director of the Integrated Microscopy Facility: a unit administered by the Neuroscience Research Institute and the Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental biology. This facility provides instruction and support for projects that require advanced imaging. In addition, he serves as the instructor for MCDB 220: a graduate level course for digital microscopy at the University of California. Presently he is strengthening the ties between the University and Industry by working with such companies as Olympus of America, Media Cybernetics, Q-Imaging, Jackson ImmunoResearch, Prior Scientific, and Image Content Technology. Together, they have developed a digital imaging course that is open to attendees throughout the United States.
