Columbine Macro

April 17, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Another day of early morning macro photography. This set is of the first columbine to flower in my garden this year.

For my photography club friends: I shot this using my Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II. I used a tripod and a 60mm macro lens as well as a cable release. I shot these at ISO 200, F9, .4 sec. I used a light box for light. I shot 8-15 photos varying the focus and did focus stacking in camera to get the flower in focus. Minimal post processing in LightRoom and PhotoShop.

Columbine 3 Columbine 4
Columbine 5 Columbine 6

This is the first time I have tried to shoot a water droplet macro image. I used a photo of sunflowers in the background. Worked great for background color but clearly shows in the droplet. Also the light box lights show in the droplet as well. Here is a setup shot.
