Picturing Science
Art & Architecture Library (Bowes) » Stacks » TR692 .F735 2018
"A guide to making scientific photographs for presentations, journal submissions, and covers, featuring step-by-step instructions and case studies, by an award-winning science photographer; illustrated in color throughout. One of the most powerful ways for scientists to document and communicate their work is through photography. Unfortunately, most scientists have little or no training in that craft. In this book, celebrated science photographer Felice Frankel offers a guide for creating science images that are both accurate and visually stunning. Picturing Science and Engineering provides detailed instructions for making science photographs using the DSLR camera, the flatbed scanner, and the phone camera." (publisher's description)

"Any scientist or engineer who communicates research results will immediately recognize this practical handbook as an indispensable tool. The guide sets out clear strategies and offers abundant examples to assist researchers—even those with no previous design training—with creating effective visual graphics for use in multiple contexts, including journal submissions, grant proposals, conference posters, or presentations." (Publisher's description) A print copy of this book is also available in the Stanford Libraries. Felice Frankel's website
Envisioning Science
Cambridge, Mass. : MIT Pess, c2002.
Marine Biology Library (Miller) » Stacks » TR692 .F73 2002
"Science and engineering research must be communicated within the research community and to the general public, and a crucial element of that communication is visual. In Envisioning Science, science photographer Felice Frankel provides a guide to creating dynamic and compelling photographs for journal submissions and for scientific presentations to funding agencies, investors and the general public. The book is organised from the large to the small, from pictures of new material and biological structures made with a camera and lens, to images made with a stereomicroscope, compound microscope and Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). The text explains how to design, craft and execute effective images, SEMs, and diagrams while maintaining scientific integrity." (publisher's description)
