Hudson River Park

We took a walk up top pier 63, Hudson River Park. One of the new features in my Nikon Z 7 is something called Focus Shift Shooting. The camera will take up to 300 shots at sequential focus settings. This is good for macro photography. Then the images are stacked and merged in Photoshop. I took 20 focus shift shots for the first photo below. I look forward to experimenting with this feature.

    I love this series, Sherry. Merging 20 images sounds so incredible. I did once for a closeup flower with only 3 images.

      Thanks Amy. Photoshop aligns and makes a focus stack merge of 20 images in very little time.

    I think 20 focus shifts are more than enough for a good result, I usualy do about 5.

      Thanks for the tip. I’ll try fewer focus shifts. It’s my first week with a camera that does this. I am loving how sharp this camera is. Pity I couldn’t afford the Nikon Z 7 II.

    I love the floating pumpkin. I thought, “There goes Halloween, washed down the river.” And the gradations in the blue-green of the pine boughs are lovely.
