This week the 52frames challenge was upside down. I struggled, I wasn’t sure what I was going to find to photograph. To be honest, I have been at the computer most days, processing images for our travels. I haven’t been out and about with my camera. Sunday, we were going to drive to my home town, the weather forecast for the area wasn’t great, highway road report between here and there was less than ideal, so we stayed home, and I played… setting up a still life with a tiny flower jar and tiny flowers.
I wanted to learn more about focus stacking, both photographing for it and processing it in photoshop. I was clicking away when I decided that I would dump all the flowers out of the bottle, this would be my 52frames “upside down”
Focus stacking (also known as focal plane merging and z-stacking or focus blending) is a digital image processing technique which combines multiple images taken at different focus distances to give a resulting image with a greater depth of field (DOF) than any of the individual source images.
I love the way the still life turned out, and I love learning new techniques for producing images. Did you learn something new this week?
