Fruit in Focus
I used this week's challenge to try focus stacking. After a couple of tests I settled on some fruit. I took eight shots and use Photoshop's align on import and blend tools to get a shot of sharp fruit.

Assignment: One of the important traits of a photographer is the ability to notice and photograph the wonderful details of life. We often see things that most people do not even notice. It is sort of the photographer’s ‘job’ to see these hidden details, to photograph them and show to the rest of the world how beautiful our world really is. This may all seem a bit daunting but the good news that it is not difficult to develop your photographer’s eye. Macro photography, taking photos of small things larger than life-size, is an excellent exercise for honing this special eye. So this week, creative Framers, we are going to photograph small things. Insects are often a popular subject for macro photography but you can also look for moss, water drops, feathers, seeds, and crystals. Other subjects for macro photography are detailed textures of just about anything, zoomed in body parts (for example eyelashes or a cat’s nails) or small details of inanimate subjects such as the bristles of a toothbrush of the stamens of a flower.
