"focus stacking"


creekside, US
          

Anyone use this kind of program? Just wondering if it would be something that would be beneficial to my waterdrop photography...suggestions? and is it expensive?

Darlene...seriously..you have to branch out to the other non body specific forums!! You have so much to offer! This is probably better asked in the macro forum, or one of the pp forums.

BUT!!! since you asked it here -- my best guess, not having used it, is that it won't work well with what you do, because you don't have the time to set things up -- you are shooting "as it happens" without much tie to think. Focus stacking really needs a relatively stable subject that you can take multiple photos of over a period of at least some number of seconds -- unless I mis-read what you are doing, you don't have that flexibility??

AND, I understand why you posted here -- the people here know what you are doing, other forums would not.

Well at least with waterdrop focus stacking, the resulting final image might end up with a sequence like photostacking ala fireworks style(?) I need to experiment with that. It is a good idea!

Fly safe, drive safe and keep safe.

Hey Dennis, you're absolutely right,,,with my waterdrops, focus stacking isn't going to even come close to working, and yes, also, people do know my work here, that's why I posted it here....but I did move over to the macro like Sheri made me...heheheeh, just kidding Sheri.!
