    My first attempt at Focus Stacking.

    I have a Nikon D7100 and a Tamron 90 mm macro lens. I set up a copy stand and used "Control My Nikon" software to shoot a stack of images at f8 & 1/60. I used my SB800 flash in Remote mode and the flash on the D7100 in Commander mode to provide lighting. I set a 2 second delay between images and the flashes fired each time. Examination of individual images show even lighting.

    A series of 25 images with a 50nm separation for each was used.

    The first image is a fired .30 cal bullet, recovered from ballistic gelatin. The second is a piece of wave weathered concrete recovered from the Chesapeake Bay.

    The images, after processing with Zerene Stacker, came out just "Meh".... Any suggestions on how to improve would be welcome. Bullet1b.jpg Rock1b.jpg

    Thanks in advance.
