I purchased a zOrb electronic microscope so I could take those fancy pics of trichomes I see all over the Web. My problem is that I apparently do not have steady enough hands to actually get a good look at the trichomes, let alone take a picture. I took video and tried to screen grab but that was all blurry too.
How do people take good pics of their trichomes?! Everything is shaking around too much, especially me. I turned off all the ventilation in my tent and that helped, but I’m still wondering the best way to get a clear look at my buds close up. Any tips?
@Bogleg Here is how I do it. I cut a very small sample in the area that I want to look at, then set it on a surface that will have a good back ground (something black or white). then focus my microscope on that small sample. This way nothing is moving and you can get a good picture like this.
I usually just cut one of the tiny leaves that are on your bud. You don’t need a very big sample. So take a pair of regular scissors and gently cut one of the tiny leaves off. In most cases it will stick to you scissors. Then place it on a white or black background and take a picture. They are very sticky so sometimes its hard to get them off @Bogleg
