Focus Stacking

September 21, 2019 10:00 am

Our regular September meeting will discuss Focus Stacking, i.e. techniques to increase sharpness in high depth of field shots by taking and merging multiple photos at different focus positions. Nick Lascone will demonstrate automated macro focus stacking with a Cognisys Stackshot rail. A small, interesting object will be the subject of the stacking process. Helicon Remote software will be used to automatically guide a rail borne camera and manage the camera controls. Helicon Focus and Affinity Photo will each be used to merge the resultant stacked shallow depth shots into one totally focused image. Different ways of saving and displaying the Helicon Focus results will also be demonstrated - including 3D animation.
