Focus Stacking is a technique which allows you to create the precise depth of field that you want.

When you focus-stack, you get extended depth of field in perfect focus and sharpness, while maintaining a blurred background if desired. It is the perfect technique for macro, landscape and product photography.

This workshop teaches you everything you need to know to start focus stacking including how to take and process your images. No special equipment is required other than a camera, lens and software, although a tripod is also useful for macro images.

This workshop shows you how to process your images using Lightroom & Photoshop, Photoshop, Bridge or Helicon Focus software.
