A portrait of our dog with the fabulous Z 85/1.8 wide open

Getting a dog to stay still long enough to shoot with razor thin depth of field is another matter 🙂

NIKON Z 7 + NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S @ 105 mm, 1/160 sec at f/3.5, ISO 64 x 20 Frames

A lonesome single shroom appeared in our lawn one nice overcast day. Time to get out the new Nikkor Z 105mm macro. I also decided to use the Z7’s built in focus stacking mode (for the very first time :))

This was shot with 20 focus stacked frames. Starting at the front (nearest) edge of the delicate little fungi

I shot the frames at f/3.5 for a quick drop off in depth of field so I’d get a lovely bokeh blur for the background

In comparison the other image is a single frame taken at f/16. To get enough depth of field to cover the whole fungi. But as you can see the foreground and background especially is much less pleasing

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