Inner light
A true bug specimen was fixed and dehydrated before being critical point dried and sputter coated with 15nm gold. Backscattered electron imaging at 30kV in a Hitachi environmental SEM S3400 was used to capture the image of the insectís compound eye. The image was converted to RGB format and a color wash applied. The eye was then colored by hand. Gradients were applied across the eye and the whole image. The background was selected and subtle color washes applied to lighten it from black. Finally a lighting effect was selected.
