30JUN2021 – Photography – Focus Stack – Brazilian Jasmine Flower

I dragged this potted plant inside from its sommer home on Camera Girl’s kitchen porch where it gets the sun it craves.

Getting both the leaves and the bottom of the trumpet in focus is usually a very difficult proposition.  So this approach is a good workaround for that kind of shot.  Once again, the post processing in the Affinity Photo software is not up to the standards I expect with Capture One.  But it’s a start.

27JUN2021 – Photography – Focus Stack – Clematis Flower

Okay, enough bugs for a while.  let’s start with this clematis flower.  I just stuck it on a flat background so the depth of field is limited. But still an interesting experiment.


One limitation that I have noticed is that the Affinity Photo software that does the focus stacking is not as capable as the post processing software (Capture One) that I typically use for all my other photos.  So cleaning up the results of the photo stack isn’t as satisfactory.
