Focus Stacking

I’ve been playing with my macro lens recently in my yard.  I haven’t used this lens much over the years and I sort of forgot how narrow the depth of field is with it.  Which means that you can’t get the entire flower in focus, unless you use the magic of focus stacking.  So that’s what I did.  This photo is made from 7 photos focused at different spots and then I blended them together for this complete in focus photo of these flower buds.  This Focus Stacking technique creates some amazing detail.  Take a look at all the detail on the buds and the plant
