Using eyedropper, I placed a single drop on the stone ledge of this outdoor fireplace. I set up my tripod and took a bunch of photos from different angles before settling on this one. I then took a bunch of photos that were manually focused at slightly different points and I merged in Lightroom 6. This is a technique called ‘focus stacking’. This allowed me to get the flames in very sharp focus. The blue line is a reflection of the overhead LED lights we have on our back porch, shown here.
