Two new images to demonstrate full focus, stacked focus imaging...
These photos were taken with a 50mm Sigma macro lens, shooting 14 pictures to make the full focus composite. Note the focus and detail on the cropped segment showing threads in the sheer fabric background and detail on the kitchen knife and sharpening steel.
Of course, this is for illustration..we do not recommend a sheer fabric as a suitable surface for pumpkin carving. : )
Imagine a close up rendering of a motherboard or technical device, close and in focus front to back. Of course, as shown here, full focus with staked focus technique works as well for non-technical subjects like a table of food or deserts and tableware, close up, personal and clearly shown.
Scroll down to previous post to see full explanation of what we do and think of how it may benefit your business net presence and print advertising.

However, for certain technical photographs and clarity of view on an item otherwise not fully in focus, stacked focus is an answer. This clever procedure is a work-a-round to the limited depth of focus f/stop settings allow with certain lenses and in low light conditions.. For instance, the photographer may use a more open f/stop for good exposure in lower light conditions yet avoid the depth of field problems of wide aperture. A photo such as this required over 12 individual photos, each focused at a slightly different part of the revolver, working from front to back. Aligning and stacking the photos into a single image gives what is shown here. Click the photo for a larger version of the Revolver to show more clearly what we mean.
See the post of August 30, 2014 for an example of a gaming figure used in Warp Wide Wargaming. Developments at Thomas Haynes Photoshoot allow excellent rendering of photo files and high resolution prints of your army, terrain and individual cmponents.
We work within a reasonable drive of Clinton, Tennessee. We make a point of complete communication about the photography work prior to the first shutter click, assuring that your ideas and our capabilities are merged for best overall results in business and personal photography.

Color calibration is vital in my work and must be accurate for the intent of the photo. Obviously for print, color should print to look closer to what the monitor shows rather than further from that view. The edited color in the photo needed to look like I wanted or the entire effort would be wasted.
Contact us today for a meeting to discuss the photos you want, commercial or personal. Color will be the best that software and monitor calibration will allow. (We now have the expense of a new graphics editing monitor.. ordered and on the way.) An x-Rite color chart is used to start and profile is generated for the specific photo session. We still prefer black/white for some shots to meet particular technical or artistic goals. Black/white allows room for personal editing for effect and drama. Then again, a pure technical shot may require certain benchmarks for monochrome rendering.
A PDF of basic short session pricing is available to download at link to the right. Custom and more involved photography work will be priced accordingly.

Sure, once the new member of the family grows a little there will be more precious times to record, those of three people. On this day, a little girl was there...almost ready to be born but for now, the baby bump, the pregnant tummy is all we see. The photos are memories of marvelous anticipation of the new child in the mother's arms.

This corrected price sheet replaces the previous one. Download and print if you wish. Pricing is lowered by $10/hour, corrected from previous price list which was a working draft posted inadvertently. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
Some pro photographers show pricing, others do not. We are able to show basic pricing for simple photo sessions at your location, including families, pets, animals(horses, or barrel racing for instance..)if you or family members do that. This is based on your location and what we can get done in the time allowed. Pricing for more complicated photo work and most commercial work will be estimated by the job at hand after we spend some time talking with you about what you need.

The best intentions do not always work out...the kitty did not want to be dressed up with a tiara..she did what she would normally do in the situation and played her own game. The photos were hits, showing her personality well.
The CONTACT form is at the right. Send us an e-mail and we will get back with you right away, using normal e-mail which allows better communication.
Tell us what type of photography you are thinking about and we will talk about it, visit your location, take a few sample shots and plan it out.
Personal or business...we will go the distance to bring out what you need in family, your animals, your business marketing for print or web.
One emphasis of this work is photography of your pets and critters meaningful to you. One line is drawn: We work with you, pairing your thoughts with our technical and creative directions. We believe you will find the results worth it. If not, then you are out nothing. Yes, we do believe you will say "good" about working with Thomas Haynes Photography for your special images. We will talk enough about it and survey locations before a shutter is pushed. We should know if our direction is compatible before photography begins.
Look at what is here on this blog and on our storage website, Thomas Haynes Photography at zenfolio, to see a photography story better than a page more of words can tell. We are an e-mail away and it can be yes, no, maybe but we sure don't know if you want us to do your photos unless we talk about it first..so contact is needed to find out if we are on the same page and if we are the photographer for you. Then you can say,
"Let's get to it". And we will.

This is part of an old Welsh creeping, climbing rose bush. It came to this country about 200 years ago, making transitions and continuing life with cuttings taken to preserve the heritage. Click image for larger view. The bush is contained by turning new canes back, a birds nest effect and perfect bramble for Peter Rabbit™!

These are natural everyday life memories...the best kind of all. A photo of you and pets together, with you children, times of fun and smiles...photos for now and for memories years from now of heart felt times with the critters...that is what we strive to do.
Formal animal portraits are certainly available as you wish. We suggest you have photos of both kinds.
Use the contact box to the right to receive a 2 page PDF of current pet photo information and pricing. Please say "animal photo" in the text.
This kitty shown had been in medical care for a long time and is shown one first day she was outside, soaking in the sun and smells of the free space around her. The photo is a favorite because it is of a totally real and important event the caretakers remember well.

Excellent photographs done at reasonable price.
of these kitties. Not fancy, not staged... two cats are doing exactly what they like...looking through the screen door into the woods beyond.
