California Poppy

Yellow Poppy
This flower taken on a light pad using a focus rail. There were about 25 images taken to get the entire flower in focus. The poppy is from my yard in Sonoma County, California

  1. I like these flower photos constructed using this technique. The detail is striking. How do you decide how many raw component photos to take. Does the software help you decide?

    • Thank you, Mike. Using a focus rail, you start at the fullest point of your object in focus and the rail on the highest point. You rotate the knob on the rail a turn to move the rail down. The number of turns depends on how much depth there is in the object you’re photographing. The greater the depth the more photos were taken.
