Playing with Focus Stacking

Uploaded: September 08, 2020 | Entered: September 08, 2020 06:45:20


This little grasshopper is a little over an inch long. I used the in-camera focus stacking, then smoothed the background in Smart Photo Editor because some of the frame edges were apparent there. Used a Canon 250D closeup.
