BASIC FOCUS STACKING – MINI COURSE
In this course we will discuss 3 things :
Pre – Shoot | Live – Shoot | Post – Production
This course is part of a live workshop with SJP Members. We have pulled all the important parts of the workshop so you can learn how to photograph several images that are sharp and then stack them together to make one complete file (photograph) in focus.
- You'll have 6 videos of detailed information.
- PDF of details of the course with links to other tutorials.
- Light ratio PDF
- Course organizer PDF to help you stay focused and follow through with your tasks.
- General Information sheet giving you more information plus the link to join Janice's Private Facebook group.
Once completed, you will be able to do a basic photo stack in Adobe Photoshop.
What is focus stacking? It’s the only way (at the moment) to get the subjects that you’re photographing in focus when you’re close-up to them. To do this you must photograph several images that are gradually in focus (the goal is from foreground to background) and merge them together.
Our members had a Live Workshop where we all jumped on a call with Janice and worked on focus stacking together. Next, the members worked for an hour by themselves and showed their work in the Forum and/or Private Facebook group and lastly, we met again to answer questions and finalize the workshop with some post-processing.
Focus stacking is the only way (at the moment) to be able to get more in focus when you’re photographing subjects up close. There are 83 minutes of packed information to get you started on learning how to make your main subject nice and sharp.
If you’re a Landscape Photographer this is for you too! Make your Foreground, Middle and Background shots nice and sharp and after this course, you’ll be able to merge those files together to make a beautiful landscape to tell your story.
In this image below if Janice had not added multiple images that are in focus together she would not have achieved the result of the leaf being in complete focus.
