A Shot A Day – 2016 (02/25/2016)
The Franklin Park Conservatory has hosted an outstanding Orchids display this year. I have made three trips down there in the last month, to work the Orchids from different angles and points of view. On this last trip I went with the express goal of doing some focus stacking, here is one example from the outing.
Canon 5DSR, Canon EF100mm f/2.8 Macro IS USM
ISO 200 – 1/200 @ f/22
Canon MT-24EX Macro Flash, 2X Sto-Fen MT-24EX Diffusers
2X RRS Macro Rails, 1X Arca Swiss C1 Cube Geared Head
I think Orchids are amazing flowers with a depth that’s really hard to capture in a single shot.
In this image, I carefully aligned looking down the center of the flower’s body. Once I had the composition where I wanted it, I took a series of 120 images, progressively moving focus further and further into the the depth of the bloom.
