Today’s post features a focus-stacked, macrophotograph of a Trillium wildflower as it blooms in the woodlands, in the Missouri Ozarks.
I captured 25 individual images and then combined them into a single image. As you can see, the detail can be seen in most of the resulting image. But you can see that flower movement is a huge factor in capturing focus-stacked images … it is very obvious that the reddish petals are gently moving in the gentle wind:
