 Post subject: two flies and DOF study
PostPosted: Sat Oct 30, 2010 1:47 am 
Didn't do this on purpose, but after uploaded the pictures noticed the two were taken at aproximate effective apertures and 4x to 5x magnification with Canon MP-E 65mm

Fly portrait by Gustavo Mazzarollo, on Flickr

Focus stack of 2 pictures with Canon MP-E @ 5x and f/5.6, manual stack in GIMP. Effective aperture of f/33.6 Theoretical DOF of 0.095mm each photo

fly2 by Gustavo Mazzarollo, on Flickr

MP-E @ 4x and focus stacked from two frames at f/7.1, zerene stacker.
Effective aperture of f/35.5 Theoretical DOF of about 0.15mm each photo.

I think this time the DOF expansion of the lower magnification resulted in even more detail considering these photos are stacks, the magnification increased the size, but not the detail of the eyes.

As of all of your pictures, simply wonderful!

Personally, I think that the Cameralabs users would appreciate it if you made a post, telling us how you take such wonderful shots.
