Today's Meeting

Hi Members,

If you love flowers, you were well treated today at our official last meeting at the library for this term.  Alicia Cook prepared an excellent talk on Flower Photography, which Diane presented.





How about John Nichol's presentation of Focus Stacking? Didn't have these photos the 'WOW' factor?




The lesson notes of John's presentation is now on this blog (over there ------->)

Even though the term has officially finished, that won't stop us taking a trip to the Mt Coot-tha Botanic Garden in a couple of weeks.

This is what we're going to see:

Next meeting - Monday 14 September - 11.00am

Hi Everyone,

We have an interesting meeting planned for Monday,

After the photo show of your images on flash photography, we will discuss Flower Photography and Focus Stacking. Two of our members have researched and practices these techniques. Alicia Cook has put together a talk on FLOWER PHOTOGRAPHY, which Diane will present. Then we have a new exciting topic, FOCUS STACKING. John Nichol will explain how it works. Thank you both, Alicia and John.






Then John Nichol will explain the subject of FOCUS STACKING.

Focus stacking (also known as focal plane merging and z-stacking or focus blending,) is a digital image processing technique which combines multiple images taken at different focal distances to give a resulting image with a greater depth of field (DOF) than any of the individual source images. Focus stacking can be used in any situation where individual images have very shallow depth of field; macro photography and optical microscopy are two typical examples. Focal stacking can also be used in landscape photography.

Below are a few images of flowers, processed with Focus Stacking technique by John Nichol one of our members in Camera Club 2. Thank you John.





SEE YOU ON MONDAY
