Macro photo: portrait of house fly (1780 x 1780)
My first insect "studio stack". This is large fly of some common species.
Gear: "snowflake" macro setup, containing Canon Powershot A650 and reversely mounted lens Helios 44M-5 as magnifier (described in article about snowflake macro photography) + small desktop tripod (Continent TR-F7).
Light: ambient daylight in room + direct sunlight from left side through sheet of white paper. Background: light blue book cover.
Source images: series of 64 photos (16 groups with different focus, and each group contained 4 identical images for averaging). After RAW processing, i averaged images in groups and then do focus stacking.
