Up close and personal
« on: May 09, 2017, 21:32:07 »
Image stack, 58 images, worked the halos a bit in post. Used flash through diffuser to light her.

I'd be interested to hear what you think about it.

Thanks Jakov, glad you like it.

I know, the drops are quite cliche, but you know ... just had to do it  8)

Thanks, glad you like it.

Raw conversion in Capture One, then I used Helicon focus to stack (method C) and then Capture One again to finish the image.

By the way, the stacking itself was done by focus changing, not with a rail. Nikon D810, Sigma 150 macro and two flashes through large round diffuser.
