צמחים בבית של אמא

In my entry for Paula’s Thursday Challenge this week, I’ve tried a technique called focus 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

I’ll probably play around more with focus stacking later and perhaps even create a tutorial. You can find Paula’s post by clicking this image:

  1. This is one photo with great clarity, Cardinal. I like it. It’s very warm and it looks as if I’m looking through a window. Love your blog for how you show us around your neighbourhood, and for photos and photo techniques too. Hope all is well so far this spring for you 🙂

  2. Max, this is wonderful. I love the light, the colours and focus of course. I used focus stacking on my pineapple pic and two orchid photos 🙂

  3. It certainly makes for an interesting composition, Cardinal. How many images did you combine to achieve this fascinating effect? I feel utterly boring 😦

  4. My Hebrew is pretty rusty (and it was never all that great in the first place) but did I read it right that this is a plant (I didn’t recognize the name of it) at your mother’s house? It’s a lovely succulent and a technique that’s new and interesting to me. I’ll be most curious to hear more about how you do it. I’m expecting a tripod to be involved.

    • My Hebrew is getting rusty too. It’s deteriorating quickly if you don’t pratice it often enough (which I don’t), but you’re right: the title of the post is “Plants at mom’s house”.
      You’re also right about the tripod: in order to focus stack images, you need several photos shot from the same camera position.
