    Fun with cicaadas . . .

    Judging by the screech, this must be what a cicada exoskeleton looks like to that city fella:

    Kind of like an alien falling to Earth. I like it.
    I've got a barrel cactus ready to bloom and I might try your multi focus you posted if weather permits.
    Were in our monsoon season. Unpredictable. I'll probably also try HDR.
    Most of my photographs are what might be called grab shots so a bit of discipline couldn't hurt.
    Chadeaux and AARC like this.

    Yep, they're pretty similar. Generally with HDR 3 - 5 exposures are good for me.

    With focus stacking, it depends on the area that I'm working with. Just have to make sure that the focus on each shot slightly overlaps the one before. Best results come from largest aperture (lowest number) for exposures. That leaves lots of bokeh in the image where you don't want the focus. The camera just has to be able to manually focus each shot.

    I haven't seen what my lens can do as far as creating bokeh. I know some are better than others.
    Right now I only have kit lenses so they aren't very fast. I might try an extender just to see the affect.
    I've got a prime lens on my wish list. I have thought of buying an adapter for a old Sekor f1.7 I have
    as manual focus is needed.
    Thanx for the tips.

    I was reading some tips on stacked focus along with yours. One that I needed was the go to live screen mode and click the magnify button so the subject is larger and easier to focus. With my eye sight this will be a huge help.
