my entry to '52 weeks' contest by @wwwiebe
This week prompt was 'Macro', so I decided to make a focus stake of a few macro shots I did last summer. A splendid raspberry, isnt it? Taken with Canon 5D, Sigma 150mm tele, no tripod / artificial lighting (just a punch of x-processing effect added in pShop).
Also it is my 1st post to the new Steemit community: GEMS... and with this post I'm doing a little PR and raise awareness about it.
Those who follow me a while may know that I am not a big fan of shooting food or cooking recipes (simply: I cant do it well!), probably with this one exception of macro. When I'm feeling attacked by a harsh inspiration, of course I do shoot food object... and here are some examples. Some of these macros I have shared, sometimes in alter takes, thru the nTopaz app -- and I should note I was left pretty disencouraged getting close-to-zero curation, I believe this is a decent efforts, worth a bit more rewarding...
A nutmeg. (Same setup, except a halogen lighting; no focus stacking applied here) .
Anchovies! Served me as a breakfast a while ago.
Persimmons -- I love everything about them, except their taste. Which I simply dont tolerate :)) Sounds stupid, but things like that do happen... Especially I love to watch it (every other edition is different, personal, unique -- its a pure magic!) and to hold in my hands... and to take pictures, of course. This was my 1st experience (a happy one!) in the focus stacking technology, by the way..
