Macro – various

Inspired by the frost of the weekend, I decided to take the opportunity of the frost on Tuesday to retake pictures in the garden – this time I wanted to stack images to get as much of the subject in focus as possible.

I used my Olympus E-P5 with Olympus 60mm F2.8 macro lens to shoot the images. This lens does the focusing internally, which allows for the lens to remain the same distance away from the subject. They were all taken at 1:1 full macro.

These macro images do let us see things really up close, but it is the focus stacking which allows the physically impossible – more of the subject to be in focus (than even that with very small apertures on the lens).
