Sharpen Up With Focus Stacking

Salem Covenant Church

What we'll do
Let's explore focus stacking to get tack-sharp macro images. You may want to refresh yourself on what capabilities your camera has for in-camera focus stacking and experiment with that as well at the meeting, this session will focus on manual shooting.

What to bring:

  • Tripod
  • Macro lens if you have one
  • a rail system if you have one
  • a tabletop light if you have one
  • Macro photography subjects/props

Here is a description of the steps involved in post-processing in either Photoshop or Lightroom.

Doane's Falls Royalston MA

Doane's Falls

Waterfall season is here. Let's kick it off by visiting Doane's falls in Royalston MA. Doane's has three different drops that are viewable from the main trail. The hiking is easy to moderate depending on the location you choose to shoot from. By late April there will be no ice on the trail but it may be wet so wear appropriate footwear for hiking. Bring water and snacks since Royalston is a very small town without any stores or resturants close to this area. Doane's is located on the Tully trail so please be sure to get there early to get parking.

For equipment a standard and wide angle lens are fine for this area. A tripod and polarizer and or ND filters work best for daytime shooting of waterfalls. The image attached was shot with a polarizer and 3x nd filter.

Dress according to the current weather conditions. Parking at the top area of the falls is limited. There is parking at the lower area to access the falls from the bottom and then work your way up to the top.

We will all meet at the top to start and then move to the lower parking if needed. As always please be on time so others are not waiting for you.

Food Photography

Salem Covenant Church

This is something we have not tried yet. I have just started dabbling in it and hope that you will want to come and give it a try for yourself.

We will have foods and plates, bowls, cloths etc.
Bring your sense of adventure, camera, tripod, interesting cloths and kitchen items if you have any and a willingness to try.

This was shot at 18mm but I think anything up to 50mm should work out just fine.
