    Default Focus Stacking

    I hope it is OK to post a link to an episode on a rival podcast.

    This technique seems kind of cool. You can keep a shallow depth of field to get the bokeh you want, yet get all of the subject in focus. It is especially useful in macro photography. I tried this on the shiny assignment post I did of the crystal ball and it seems to work.

    No problem at all asnow, I just moved it to the digital forum as it seems better placed there.

    Thx! Marko

    I have tried taking images with a microscope and stacking in photoshop. It did work however I then tried to reverse the 28mm lens and stop it down as much as it would go and I took a picture of same wood screw without need for any stacking.
    Tried using same method with top of beer and again it worked well. However when I tried using same method to take pictures through a castle arrow hole to get the stone work and view beyond it was a failure. Two screws shown here. For the tie he used I would have manually selected the areas and then used auto blend layers it can be seen from demo that photoshop selected some random areas and unless one has focus all over the place within the picture you can do a better job.
