Garlic Knob

Garlic Knob, 3/19/2018, Studio: fotografia-LA, Los Angeles, CA

This garlic knob on my kitchen windowsill was growing towards the sun for several weeks. I brought it in the studio for a macro shot against a cocoa background. 15 frames were taken with the focus point in 15 different locations from front to back, then stacked on 15 layers and merged together into one image file in Photoshop CC 2017. This widened the in-focus area dramatically increasing the short depth of field associated with macro photography.

Next, it will return to the kitchen to be chopped fine, and slowly simmered in oil to make l’aglio l’olio.
