Trying Things Out

I have been experimenting with a technique called Focus Stacking, that is a way of increasing the Depth of Field to produce seemingly difficult ranges.

It can be used in close up Macro style photography, and Landscape to give yo an image with a Depth of Field that otherwise may appear very difficult or impossible to achieve.

I found the following software to be quite easy to use and create interesting results.

The first is free, and is somewhat basic, but seems to work when you get used to its layout.


The second piece of software is a commercial editor suite with a generous license agreement, which includes a very easy Stacking Menu that has produced quite pleasing results.

Affinity Photo 4 from Serif Software.

Be adventurous and have a go.
