Good lighting requires simplicity. The least number of lamps possible should be employed. The greatest intensity should be directed at or near the center of the area of interest. The major lighting recommendation is summarized in Figure 125.

Medical Illustration Dept, 1980s

While browsing the Wellcome Images collection I came across these photos showing the various activities of a mid 1980’s Medical Illustration departement. Most likely at the Charing Cross Hospital, the researchers at Wellcome tell me.
It’s interesting to see that even though the technology has changed a lot, the tasks are still much the same: clinical and specimen photography, video production, graphic design and presentation support.

WordPress sent me a great review of The Sterile Eye stats for 2010. Here’s a summary:
The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 85,000 times in 2010. If it were an exhibit at The Louvre Museum, it would take 4 days for that many people to see it.
In 2010, there were 52 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 225 posts. There were 248 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 24mb. That’s about 5 pictures per week.
The busiest day of the year was April 17th with 1,105 views. The most popular post that day was Jan van Rymsdyk – Drawer of Wombs.
