Looking closer… #5

Fokus stacking… I shot 6 images of this object and changed the focus point for each shot, adjusting and fine tuning the focus for the selected area. I then imported these images via Lightroom into Photoshop where I did the alignment and blending of these images. After saving and returning to Lightroom I made some minor color adjustments to the final image and created a vignette to frame the center. I think this technique is essential for certain compositions… this one isn’t perfect, but I will keep trying.

Happy days. Reinhold

Looking closer… #4

Variations of an object. Rather than posting 4 different objects I decided to stick to one object for today. I captured 4 close-ups. Tomorrow I will use a similar approach, but will use “photo stacking”.

Focus stacking 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. Wikipedia
