p.1 #1 · Orchid Focus Stack


Still trying to get the whole focus stack technique..I think I'm getting close, but still far from perfect.

This is a combination of 6 shots...

Thanks for looking and as always, I appreciate your comments and suggestions!

Very nice Greg. Great comp, colors, and bg. Everything but the buds int the bg are in focus, and that works for me ~ Ron

Looks nice to me Greg! I think your stacking is coming along nicely! I have never even tried it!

Thanks Ron. I debated continuing the stack to the back buds, but decided they didn't offer enough to the overall composition to do so. I think that the thing about focus stacking - know when to stop!

Thanks Tim. I can imagine you not having time to do this considering the awesome bird shots you've been getting lately...especially those Snowy Owls!!!

It's nice, the curve is pleasing. WB looks a little warm to me, maybe a wee bit off the top to accentuate the arching of the display??

Thanks Karl! Do you think a little tilt would help if the end of the blooms was facing more downwards? I almost cropped it like that..and that would have cut some of the space at the top.. I'll check the WB as well. I used a diffused tungsten lamp through an umbrella and an additional diffusion screen to light this...maybe that's why it's a bit on the amber side...
