This is a GigaPan of a Kalanchoe houseplant. I like Kalanchoe (Mother of Thousands) because it is a great example of vegetative propagation. Tiny plantlets form on the leaf margins that actually develop roots before dropping off to form new independent plants.
The primary purpose of this image is to practice taking closeup GigaPan images with multiple exposures at each stop that are taken at differing focus points and merging these image layers with Helicon Focus. The image is a total of 25 images (5 X 5).
Images were taken with a Canon SX-20 IS on manual exposure and manual focus. The camera was mounted on a GigaPan EPIC 100.
Photos were taken on my dining room table using diffuse natural light from a south facing window supplemented by a full spectrum reading lamp and the overhead dining room chandelier with led bulbs.
