BIOS - Images of the Southern Biosphere of Brazil

With a systematic acquirement of visual information (by photography and video recording), we aim to constitute a collection of analogical and digital photographic images of the genetic banks in conservation areas that are under the responsibility of the Government of the State of Rio Grande do Sul, through of Zoobotanical Fundation.

The Bios Project, part of a cooperation agreement between the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) and the Zoobotanical Foundation of Rio Grande do Sul, intends to create a detailed and wide image bank of the biological specimens of the Natural Science Museum, Botanical Garden and Zoological Park (Esteio – Rio Grande do Sul). This is the BIOS Project: Images of the Southern Biosphere of Brazil, and its sub-project "Image Bank of Biological Collection".

The production of imagens of this collection has the intention of promoting activities of environmental and ecological education for regional, national and international communities besides providing the creation of a bank of images, composed of three interlinked digital stations, endowed with fast access to the visual information, provided with scientific textual data of the environments in this project, as follows:
1 - Botanical Garden of Porto Alegre
2 - Zoological Park of Rio Grande do Sul

The Photography Center of UFRGS, as concerns to the image bank, will be the manager of this work. For this task, it has been assembled an initial staff of photographers, under the guidance of professor Mario Bitt Monteiro, whose partakers are:

Cláudia Silveira Rodrigues, is advertising professional and photographer and is a former student of the Photography Center, where she have taken part in research projects on advertisement photography, as a holder of a scientific initiation scholarship (FAPERGS) in the period 1995 until 1998;
And
Karine Endres, journalism student, communication graduation course, photography monitor and partaker of the Experimental Photography Group (GEF), a project performed by the Photography Center.

It is foreseen on the initial schedule a succession of tests aiming to discover the film most fitted to record the biological specimens images during the Project´s development. In these photographic works are taken into account the following points:

1. Exercises to authorial photography;
2. Composition modes of the images;
3. Focusing troubels and angle adjustment between the camera and the subject;
4. Suitable photometry performance;
5. Photographyc images optimizing, in the macro level, up to 1:1.
