24JUN2021 – Photography – Focus Stack – Beetle

For today’s experiment in photographing dead bugs here’s a beetle with brightly colored legs.

Part of the craft is arranging the dead bug so that he doesn’t look quite so much like road kill.  Also the other part of the deal is first post processing all the input files in terms of exposure and light balance.  But right now I’m just adjusting the merged file which is less flexible than the raw input files.  But this is as much a learning exercise for me as anything else.  So I’m taking some short cuts.  The main thing is the merge does create photos with enormously wider areas of sharp focus.

This beetle is less than a half inch in length.  I named him Bob.
