About this event
Darryl Robertson and Laszlo Podor will show you the techniques used to make images with a deep depth of field, even when shooting with wide apertures. Included in the presentation…
• What is focus stacking
• Why and when do we need it in landscape and macro photography
• How to capture the images needed for the stack
• What do you need for the capture and the stacking process
• Focus stacking in camera and in post processing
• The problems and how to correct them
While this technique requires some patience (especially in macro photography), the end result will worth the time you spend on creating focus stacked images.
