I had some flowers come up in the back yard planted a very long time ago. They never came up prior to this year, so I was pleased to see them. Flowers bring an ever present opportunity to do a little photography. I for one, enjoy photographing flowers, but not like most people. I prefer to focus stack my photos to give the flower the most detail you can get get, while leaving the background a smooth and creamy look. A very generous Facebook friend provided me with the name of these lovely little flowers, Verbena.
I decided to photograph each bloom's color for this blog. Who knows, maybe I a nice coffee table book may come out of this idea. Anyway, here are the shots if you haven't seen them already. I intend to make a nice simple focus stacking tutorial for anyone who is interest. I'll link it to this post and future focus stacking posts.
