Every once in a while, I see some detail on something I have and it makes me want to shoot some macro images. Since converting to the R3 with its focus stacking capabilities, macro is so much easier to work with. I had a car which had both printed patterns and embossed elements on it. I thought these looked interesting so set up the macro lens to get a closer look. The focus stacking in Photoshop is so straightforward when shooting on a mount, it takes no time at all to get the shots.
I was interested in the embossed elements but, when I took a look at the resulting shot, I was quite taken by the edge of the car. The layers in the laminate were quite interesting and the detail in the curves of the edge were brought out in the shots. I did also like the way in which the embossed characters come out when you are working so close in. Macro is such an interesting way to look at things that are normally on a scale which means they are lost to us.
