  • Images taken with the Olympus E-M1 III and 60mm macro lens + 26mm extension tube and 2x converter
  • Stacked with Zerene Stacker
  • Edited with Capture One and Aurora hdr

After shooting this image I notice two greenfly who had both stayed very still while I shot the stack.

Below is a crop showing the greenfly

And some more focus stacked images I created of these forget-me-nots.

The next two images below were shot with the 25mm f0.95 Mitakon lens which I've only just realized that I can use with the extension tubes and converter to produce some decent macros. Its a little soft but I like the look. I'll experiment with it again in the future.

Finally this was my camera setup, here with the Mitakon attached to the EM1 III.

Incredible shots. A good macro lens is something I dont have yet in my camera bag. I have macro ring adapters but its not the same as a proper macro lens. Once I get one Ill have to pick your brains about this stacking technique.

Thanks.

Focus stacking can be great fun if you have the time. Let me know if you get a macro lens and I'll try and answer any questions you may have.

I can't have words to describe the beauty of your work

Thank you. I'm pleased you like it.

I have a query could you help me? I saw you uploaded photos are in high resolution but when I upload an image the image lost its original resoultion

Hi, I'm not sure but it could be this.

When I upload my image into the create post edit window I get something like this below:-

!myimage.jpg(WebAddress/RandomnumbersAndLettersImage.jpg)

I change it to this:-

!myimage.jpg(WebAddress/RandomNumbersAndLettersImage.jpg)

So I put [ at the start and ] at the end. Then copy the bit in brackets including the ( and the ) and put it at the very end after the ]

Hope this makes sense and you can get it to work.

Thank you so much sir it's working

Great news.

taking a very perfect photo, even though the flowers are ordinary but look very beautiful

Thank you. That's why I love macro, it reveals the beauty that you would not normally see.

Amazing :) Cheers :)

Thanks.
