Thirsty lupin foliage collects tiny droplets in tidy rows guiding moisture down into the center.
This image was my first attempt at ‘stacking’ shots. With a long lense, it is not possible to get the whole image in focus. I took several shots adjusting the focus each time. The images are stacked in Photoshop and parts of each are masked to reveal the clearest part. A greater amount of the overall image is then in focus.
It is essential to use a tripod. The slightest movement becomes evident in post processing. I tried to reduce movement by shooting with the 2 second self-timer. There was still some movement between shots as the shoot took place in the ditch along side the highway and passing vehicles created an unavoidable draft .
Two of the 4 shots used were overexposed and needed to be adjusted to match the other two. I will have to look into where the exposure lock is on my camera and how to use it!
