Dr. Thompson, who I blogged about last week, came down to visit the other day and told me about her glow-in-the-dark bacteria. I was instantly struck by the amazing art/science connection of light, light painting, and photography.
The darkest place in school is our film changing closet for photography. We squeezed in there and started posing the petri dishes to get the best exposure. I shot several abnormally long exposures of the bacteria using our Nikon DSLR and a tripod. Here are a few of the images after some light photoshopping!
