For my research I decided to create a time lapse experiment of mouldy jam under the microscope. I did this over the weekend and the camera was timed to take photographs every 5 minutes from friday to monday.
The results were blurred because obviously the microscope has to stay in focus and instead of the mould spreading sideways which is how i hoped it would, it grew upwards, making it more and more out of focus as the film goes on. Still, here is the video. (including test shots at the start)
the three stages.
