Blue… (Macro Focus Stacking Part III)…

by on Aug.15, 2012, under Life, Photography

Whilst walking the paths through the Royal Botanic Gardens I found this plant on the side of the path in deep shade with these really interesting clusters of flowers about to be born. Basically it looked like a long thick stem with this ball shaped blob of blue at the end. This is lit with the LED macro ring light.

Note: These images (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

Firstly here is one of the individual images taken as part of the sequence for the stack – all taken at 1/100 sec at f/4 and ISO 500 (as you can see not a lot in focus and very limited DoF)

NIKON D7000 + 90.0 mm f/2.8 @ 90 mm, 1/100 sec at f/4, ISO 500

and this second is the result of focus stacking 34 exposures of 1/100 sec at f/4 and ISO 500 – whilst not perfect (some stacking errors still exist) it’s a much improved result don’t you think…
