I previously photographed the white Nigella damascena. I also have blue ones growing in my garden, which I’ve finally photographed. All images are stacked from between 4 to 7 images taken, using Helicon focus.
I had wanted to shoot the UVIVF in extreme macro and stack the images. But due to the complexity of the flower with numerous criss-crossing elements and the amount of adjustment required to get the full flower in focus, I’ve decided to just focus on the areas with the most fluorescence.
