This is a focus-stacked image of a teasel – 43 layers combined together to give a depth of focus not usually achievable in close-up and macro photography.

The original images – those 43 slices – were taken in my garage on a Nikon D800 with a 105mm macro lens at f/8 mounted on a tripod and a focus rack ( used to move the camera forward between each exposure ).

Lighting was from two strobes, one mounted each side of the teasel. The 43 slices were then combined together using Helicon Focus software.
