This small barrel cactus was about the size of a softball. I got as low as my tripod allowed to have the cactus as close to the lens as possible. I then shot eight frames at different focal points and blended them together for extreme depth of field. I have been trying to work on this technique with some recent images and have found it take quite a bit of time during the processing. I hope I am able to get the timing faster and work the technique more effectively in the future.
