2020—Alstroemeria

The past several days I have been taking photographs of flowers using the focus shift technique in the Nikon Z7 camera. After running out of interesting floral options in my own garden I realized I needed another source of blooms to photograph. Alstroemeria is one of my favorite flowers. It’s at once easy to grow and exotic looking and it comes in many colors. I must confess, however, that I did not grow this Alstroemeria. I bought it at the grocery store for a couple of dollars. And I recalled that I could convey the look of water drops using glycerin instead of water. It is very difficult to position a drop of water on a petal. Glycerin is much more forgiving. This is my first attempt at glycerin drops. Nikon Z7, Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 micro, FTZ.

  1. Loving your flower work and the stories of your “criminal” activities. Question – what software are you using to stack your images? I’ve used Photoshop and Zerene Stacker but always looking for the smarter options. Thanks. Connie
