Finally… a clean sensor

I finally got round to having my camera sensor cleaned!  So it’s nice not to have to spend the time dealing with spots in the picture.  This was taken with my Tamron macro lens.  Our garden is currently alive with bees.  Buff tailed, White tailed, Red tailed, Honey bees, plus numerous other flying creatures.  We aren’t getting many butterflies though.


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.
