Toy dinosaur

A toy dinosaur — probably a Tyrannosaus rex — was photographed against a pure white background (255, 255, 255) using the “Meet Your Neighbours” (MYN) technique. The toy is ~4.7 cm long from the tip of its nose to the end of its tail.

Tech Tips

The full frame photograph (that is, uncropped) shown above was taken using a Fujifilm X-T3 digital camera, Fujifilm MCEX-11 extension tube, and Fujinon XF80mm macro lens.

I prefer using single point focus in most situations. In this case, the focus point was centered over the right eye of the subject. Most of the subject is acceptably in focus at an aperture of f/16.

One external flash unit was used to create the white background and another to light the subject. The exposure was increased by 0.3 stop during post-processing in order to attain a pure white background.

    My new Nikon Z7 does focus stacking. I will try that on a macro again soon.
