The Met office are losing the plot a bit. They have been accurate with all manner of weather for months. They have been forecasting heavy rain for me but all we get is the odd shower. Quite pleasant showers they are. I decided that after experiencing two today it was playtime. What a playtime. It’s ages since I stacked macro shots and I first had to wait while Zerene gave me a free new version. Thanks JOHN, you did mention it but I forgot. It is much better on ‘D’ Map and if you push percentile to over 50% it saves no end of clean up in Photoshop. It’s coming of age is this software.
I set up my multi-million pound indoor studio. I used to have a different cardboard box with semi-opaque plastic on top. It was a bit of old fertiliser sack. The light seemed pretty constant today so no need for that malarkey. Good job as I inadvertently trod on the old studio whilst going for a tiddle in the dark.
As you can see no expense spared. The camera is tethered to the laptop via EOS utilities it’s excellent for this job. You can still go a bit dizzy sorting out start images but it beats looking through a view finder in the field.
SWEET CICELY. At about three times life size. I used the 100mm macro with a 36mm extender, you work it out, I’ve never been able to. It saves messing with the MP-E and a macro plate or it saves messing with any macro plate I could afford.
I got a grip on myself and decided if a mirror is worth doing it’s worth doing well. I love these mirrors. I’ll admit there is a bit of crap floats about but nothing Photoshop couldn’t sort.This and the next are sixty images stacked. I think I’ve about nailed the job.
Here is Sweet Cicely ready to procrastinate. At long last I spelt it right but I did mean progenerate or breed or whatever the word is….Got it…Reproduce. There has got to be a word that means breed that begins with a ‘P’. I like being aliturate.
Amazing how it goes from green, through white to pink and yellow. What a clever plant.
Have a good day.
