Thread: test tube

  1. #1

    Default test tube

    inspired by another photo frm the Critique corner thread (light and dark of science). Tried but can't take out the blown out patch - tube holder is reflecting light from above. am gonna try again when boss leaves the lab for the day

    think the colors can be saturated more to create more impact. Whats that? Some pH calibration buffer? =)

    Where are you working/ studying at?

    the minute scratches on the pink test solutioned test tube bugs me a little.

    yes, the scratches can be a bit of distraction. they're plastic tubes and almost everywhere. Any idea hw I can get rid of them?

    Try this.

    I found #2 in DIY stores but can't seem to find #3. Tried on some plastics and it works ok for normal view. Unable to tell you how well or bad it will appear when magnified.

    how about using the glass ones? =)

    hmm...that's a good idea. but i've got no glass tubes here - at least not in my personal stash or the lab's (i think). and boss will definitely nvr approve using research grant to requisite glass tubes for photography purposes
    maybe it's time to go to the glassware room n snoop abt

    the plastic tube holder is also a bit of a problem becos of it's design. can nvr get a clean shot of the tubes without one corner of the holder getting into the picture - either it reflects the light n gets blown out or just plain gets into the way.

    guess then, you have to open a pack of FACS tube and search for the best one in there. =)
