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.
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.
