28JUN2021 – Photography – Focus Stack – Crown of Thorns

Here’s another focus stack.  Since this plant has plenty of depth this is a more interesting study.  The range of focus extends from the screen behind the plant all the way forward to the closest branches.  By the way, setting up that sheet was more of an obstacle than everything else I had to do for this shot.  It’s one of Camera Girl’s old bedsheets and I had to rig a couple of heavy chairs onto the table behind the plant and move stuff around.  It tells me I guess I should get a screen for this kind of thing.

In the second shot you can begin to see the limitations of the Affinity software I used for post processing.  I can begin to see some brightness problems showing up in the spines.  Thanks to Camera Girl for the loan of her Crown of Thorns houseplant and bedsheet.
