Focus bracketing/stacking is fun! Panasonic G80
15

Had a good play with the focus bracketing on the G80. Took this shot in the garden tonight when the sun had gone away and the light was fairly even. It took a fair amount of patience waiting for the required stillness as the stem of the Lily was very thin and there was a breeze with very little break.

When the opportunity presented itself I fired off a 12 shot focus bracket at a step of +1 using 0/-/+, with the main focus point at the bottom of the stems for the stamen. I chose to stack only 3 shots from the 12 as it felt about right from a perspective of keeping it looking natural.

The lens was the Panasonic 12-60 kit lens at an aperture of f6.3 and a focal length of 20mm. ISO was 200 and exposure was 1/4 sec, hence the need for stillness!

I used the black side of a 5-in-1 reflector as the background and enhanced the black later in post.

Hope you like it, cheers.
