November 2009 articles written by students for
the 'Principles and Applications of Photomacrography' course
offered in the
Biomedical Photographic Communications (BPC) program
at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT)
, NY State, USA.

Micscape Acknowledgements: Many thanks to all the students over the years for sharing their enthusiasm and skills on such a wonderful variety of topics. Writing an article for Micscape initially formed part of their course as an assignment, which was a neat idea originally proposed by Ted Kinsman the course instructor 2004 and 2006, to which we readily agreed! Thanks to Ted for all the work behind the scenes to make this happen so many years ago. Also thanks to Michael Peres, the dept. head and current instructor for his introduction and for maintaining the department's generous collaboration over the years.
