Focus stacking with Isamu Sawa

We joined Isamu Sawa in Australia for his personal project where he gave us an insight into his personal projects while explaining his Focus Stacking technique. Isamu Sawa captures the beauty of re-emerging colorful flora against the black devastation of bushfires in Australia. Isamu captured multiple macro images with sequential focus points and combined them with specialized software in order to artificially maximize the depth of field of his subject shot on the IQ1 80MP Digital Back. The series preserves brief moments in the slow composition and death of profound beauty. The dried and wilting flowers photographed were all sourced from wedding ceremonies and furnished by Isamu’s wife who is a bridal florist. Explore his “Without Water” project here.
