Online education is a necessary component of modern pedagogy, as the educational system experiences a growing need for virtual content delivery. Photography and science have close connections but rarely interact across divisions within an institution, much less across institutional levels. A shared interest in color and iridescence led to a partnership focused on creating color accurate images of colorless objects. A collaboration between an instructor of photography at a community college and a professor of Entomology at a university resulted in creating virtual libraries of specimens. These libraries are being utilized in online courses, providing content that would otherwise not be possible digitally. Throughout this process, the exchange of ideas between the two educators has impacted students in unexpected ways. This presentation covers how the disciplines work together making accurate images of insects displaying special properties and the educational opportunities students experiences from the collaboration.
