I collected minerals at the Poudrette Quarry from 1988 until 1998, when I moved to New Mexico. Since then I have done nothing with minerals until lately, December 2012. Now I am in the process of getting a camera to photograph the micros. Since I left the quarry I see there are about 300 more mineral species. I made some great friends collecting there and hope to reacquaint myself with many of them.

Rather than enter the following information on every picture, let me say here that I'm using a Lumenera Infinity 1-3C camera and an Olympus SZH10 Research Stereo Microscope. I use Zerene Stacker to perform multi-focus on the photos. Then I use Photoshop Essentials to adjust color, etc.

Let me also state that I have seldom met such a great group of people willing to help. I really do appreciate it.

This year (2016) I began using a photography setup much like Henry Barwood's. It's a Cannon 40D camera, a telephoto lens and microscope objectives. Henry was a great help in setting it up. Now I need to improve my lighting skills.
