linking here, as these are some closeups of a spider I found in my house the other night. Shot using an enlarger lens mounted on a macro bellows. These are images made using 20-50 individual shots, where each shot has a different part of the frame in focus, then the images were combined in stacking software. Contrast levels, and color balance adjustment.
soosh, if your camera does video and you get time, try an experiment for me (I’d do this myself, but I’m not in possession of macro gear ATM). I can’t see why this wouldn’t work…
Take video as you sweep your focal plane from near to far on the subject, then break the vid up into individual frames. Feed those into Zerene. I’m thinking you’d trade resolution for # of frames on subjects that don’t want to sit still for long. It might be worth the effort, 1920X1080 certainly is big enough for web display, even if it’s a bit low for print.
edit: are you using the trial or full version? Is it worth the $90?
