My first attempt at focus stacking… only used three shots and pictures were taken without a tripod so had to align first then blend the layers…focus-stacking.jpg

Good shot Michael. I wonder how could you manage this without tripod, in my openion tripod is mandatory equipment when  doing the focus stacking

you can auto align in photoshop first :-)  I’ve used this when taking a group shot and everyone looks good except one person… align and then erase the person you don’t like to the picture below where they look good.

Love the shot, Michael… But, (and here’s the but) with photo stacking shouldn’t everything be in sharp focus?
Much of this photo is not.  I think many more shots in the series would be needed as well as a tripod.

I agree Mandrake… I would need a lot more shots to get everything in focus.
