‘Macro photography and focus stacking’

Oliver Wright
This week we have a presentation from an amazing wildlife and outdoors photographer Oliver Wright. Oliver has travelled to many countries for his photography and has developed a particular personal style of macro photography, which he will be demonstrating to us. Oliver says ‘Some of the wildlife subjects I photograph are very small and very active, a particular favorite being jumping spiders. This makes use of tripods very difficult even though the photography may need to be taken at five times magnification. Because of the tiny amount of the image that is in focus, stacking (taking multiple images whilst moving the camera by a tiny amount) is often used. Because the subjects move I had to develop my own techniques for handheld stacking at big magnification with natural light. Therefore creating some signature images, for example, jumping spider portraits at five times magnification where you can see trees and clouds reflected in the eyes.’
