Hi All,

I hope all of you are safe. I am staying at home doing what I am told to "flatten the curve"

The images were shot with a D850 with a 105mm macro at f8. a photo stack of 50 images was used and stacked with Zerene stacker.

I was strongly influenced by Irving Penn's book "Worlds in a Small Room" which is a series of portraits of people (mostly indigenous) who were posed against a neutral background and isolated from their environment. In this series I am taking orchids and perhaps other objects and isolating them from their environment.

Comments and criticism welcome.

Cheers,
alexis and Georgie Beagle

He also used a similar approach with tabletop photography of objects including food. His approach has inspired much of my photos of food.

WOW
I heard about focus stacking, but never thought much about it.
But for still life, like that, cool.
Now I have something to research and do while I'm cooped up in the house.

Was nominated as a feature, and I got to pick which one, so I picked your fourth image, great detail with the fine wisps and just stunning and sharp.
