Compare this image with the other image (The red gerber daisy) to see the difference between regular macro and macro with focus stacking. As you can see, the water drops on the violet are only in focus in the middle of the violet. They are out of focus in the foreground and background. That is why I love focus stacking, the entire image is in focus!
Oh my Goodness! Doing this project was so much fun! Oh how I love macro photography!! This is simply a gerber daisy that was sprayed down with my water bottle! I put a black piece of board behind it and zoomed in really close. I was using my Nikon 105 mm and my tripod of course! :) I simply started at the top of the image (focus, shoot, and move down just a little) and repeated until I reached the bottom of the image . There were approx 8 images total. I then went to PS, file, automate, photo merge and chose my images to stack! Here it is!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!!! Photography is my passion!!!! Try and share your images with me. You can FB me at Forevermore Images Photography! Or just send me a message! Have fun shooting!!!!
