From Scientific American 
  
Frankel, a science photographer and research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, presents "a guide to photographing science material." As that alone, it would be of limited interest. But two other attributes give the book a far broader appeal. One is her goal of encouraging science workers "to find a place in your research for a new way of seeing and presenting your work" so as to see "the potential of using your images to communicate to those outside the research community." The other is the pictures, a stunning array that will communicate with any reader. Open the book at random, and your eye will be dazzled: a three-centimeter drop of ferrofluid, gold on gold (one-centimeter patterned chips on a gold wafer), or a flowerlike yeast colony illuminated by daylight from a window.

Book Description 
  
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 scientific presentations to funding agencies, investors, and the general public. The book is organized from the large to small--from photographing laboratory equipment to capturing new material and biological structures at the microscopic level. Full-color illustrations including many side-by-side comparisons provide an extensive gallery of fine science photography. The book begins with a brief historical overview in a foreword by science educator Phylis Morrison. Frankel discusses technical issues and, just as important, her personal approach to creating images that are both scientifically informational and accessible. This is a handbook that should become a standard tool in all research laboratories.
