Seed Study, a set on Flickr.

There are these seeds near my home. They look like enormous dandelions. I have no idea what they are. I stopped the van on Saturday and collected a coffee cup full.
These are results of playing around with my trusty 100mm macro and a tripod. I used my playbook as a black reflective surface.
I added a little interest with an eye dropper and a mister.
What do you think?

This is my first attempt focus stacking. This is the technique of taking many photos with different focal points and merging them into a single detailed image. My 100mm lens has a very short DoF, so I took 6 photos manually focusing on different areas of the flower. I then used the CS5 to merge the images into a composite photo with this impossible depth of field. I must say it is not perfect, but I have to say that I am pretty happy with result.

More tweaking required…..

thx for reading

DoF by Roger's Eye

These two shots differ by one thing. By adjusting the aperture, you can increase the amount of area that is in focus. What do you lose? Detail in short. These are the extremes the camera allows to demonstrate the point. The short Dof is f2.8 and the long is f22. I guess it depends on how short you want your DoF for a nice bokeh.

Bokeh……I guess I should visit this topic next time. 🙂
Still working my way around the camera dial, last stop Manual.

Wandering around the studio again.

It is amazing the results you can get with a really short depth of field.
