    Adventures in Focus Stacking

    My first attempts at focus stacking. Turned out alright, I think. I'm getting to be very suspicious that my monitor is horridly calibrated. I fear things that look perfectly exposed to me look far underexposed to y'all. Let me know. >.>;;

    Oh, and ignore the uglies around some of the edges. Forgot to crop out the remnants of the image merging process. o.O













    Anyone else that's done focus stacking, please feel free to share some pictures and advice and whatever else. ^.^

    EDIT: A (very) succinct description of what focus stacking is: You take multiple shots of the same subject, changing the point of focus each time. The final image is the composite of all the images, the focused part of each being the only part each individual picture lends to the composite. It's used to increase depth of field, extremely helpful in macro photography.

    Very, very nice! Thank you for posting these.

    I am just a "point and shoot" person myself with a cheap camera who occassionally gets a lucky shot. I envy you all who know how to use a camera and these pictures really show the difference.
