Combine Your Macro Photography Shots for Sharper Images – Focus Stacking with Travis Vermilye — SkillShare — Free download
As a macro photography enthusiast and lover of tiny organisms, I spend a lot of time trying to gain a wider depth of field from my macro photos and photomicrography shots of lichen and slime molds and other such things. https://www.instagram.com/tvermilye/
This class will show you simply and quickly how to use two different methods of getting much sharper images through focus stacking, followed by some fast image refinement techniques with the Camera Raw filter in Photoshop. This is the process I use on all my macro photo shots!
What you’ll need:
1. A series of shallow depth of field macro photography or photomicrography shots of something. Shots should sequentially step through focal points from near focus and far focus through the subject of the image (see example images below).
2. Adobe Lightroom + Adobe Photoshop OR Adobe Lightroom + Helicon Focus (available at B&H Photo or the heliconsoft website)
The end product will be a single sharp image with wonderful color and fantastic focus depth – much more than you can get from a single image capture at close range.
