Description

During a workshop, Bruce Barnbaum encouraged us to strive to make as many images as possible within 100 kilometers of our homes. I often take my dog on walks in this little wooded neighborhood county park, which is especially nice in springtime when various native flowers bloom. And it's less than a mile from home, so well within Bruce's parameter! When I saw this drift of trillium plants, I knew I had to come back with my tripod and camera that same day, with calm wind and nice soft overcast light. There was a touch of wind so I cranked up my ISO to the point where I thought I'd minimize plant movement, and shot a few sets of focus stacks so that i could select the most still for each "focus slice" of the stacks. In post, I edited to put the focus on the Trillum plants, with the ferns falling into the background.
