This is my entry into todays #monomad photography challenge.
Here is a focus stacked image created from 33 separate shots at F2, 1/250sec, ISO200.
- Images taken with the Olympus E-M1 III and 25mm mitakon f0.95 lens + 10mm extension tube
- Stacked with Zerene Stacker
- Edited with Capture One and Aurora hdr
I normally use my 60mm macro lens for close up shots but it was not suitable on this occasion. It was either too tight on the subject or if I pulled back then the background was not sufficiently out of focus.
To the rescue came my Mitakon 25mm f0.95. I used it with my 10mm extension tube and shot at f2.0 and it gave the results I was after.
The Mitakon is a manual lens so I had to focus stack using the old method of manually turning the focus ring a small amount between each shot.

Thanks for taking a look at my photography
