Tangled up in blue

As a fun project while I'm stuck indoors (this time with the flu... UGH.), I find odd pieces of stained glass laying around my wife's workshop and combine them to create different colors/patterns/textures/etc.

This image was made by stacking 2 small pieces of glass and illuminating them from the side using a small flashlight to bring...

Rings and blurry edge issue

I've spent some time playing with photo stacking for macro shots. What I found out is that it gives one an amazing control over the depth of field.

Lighting was just a desk lamp draped with a tissue right over the...

Pink Passion

This all started with me buying Pink & White Lillys for my wife and I's anniversary this past week. I took 17 different shots and blended them together in photoshop. This is my first time stacking photos so please be gentle. I would love some feedback if you have any to give. Hope you enjoy.

Monarch Butterfly

I think this is my first good macro shot that was taken out in the wild.
Still having really hard time with the narrow DOF. Not sure fi there is anything that can be done for that when taking photos of life subjects.
