    Another excellent capture Allie :thumbsup: You are really getting the hang of the MP-E 65 it seems.

    Were these stacked?

    Hi Steve,

    jomike was referring to a technique that allie_c has used in the past to overcome the extremely narrow DoF issues that you get when working in macro.

    The basic idea is that a number of images are taken, each focusing on different areas of the subject. These images ae then combined (stacked) using some software which then gives the final image a much greater DoF.

    Have a search through allie_c's posts and you'll see what its all about.

    Regards
    Gary

    Ah, I see. Does that not cause problems with the subject moving?

    It's not something I had heard of referred to in that way.

    Yes, you do have to have a still subject and camera for this to work. Then you just focus on various parts of the subject and combine the resulting shots

    Here is a bit more on the subject:

    Thanks everyone for viewing and commenting.

    Thanks verymuch Mike, no focus stacking was done on either of these images. It takes a bit of getting used too but it really is an awesome bit of kit.

    Alistair.
