Focus stacking

I thought I would try focus stacking after watching a video on Phlearn.  This was quite basic, – I just took three shots using a 90mm macro lens focusing on each of the figures. It worked reasonably well, but think I need more pictures as I was shooting slightly down at the figures, and the legs are slightly blurry.  Still, it is good to know how it is done for future reference.

Everyone loves a “self-portrait”

In the good old days, it was seen as a bit weird taking photos of yourself – now it’s social media acceptable.  In this case, I was seeing whether my 35mm lens on a D7000 would fit the entire sofa in the frame.   It didn’t, but my test shot came out a treat.  This was taken in natural light.

I also listened to a programme on the BBC World Service called “The Why Factor” about Portrait Photography which is well worth a listen to. Here’s a link.
