I have been working on focus stacking images and here I have a scene I created inspired by the Bauhaus designers, using shape, colour, and composition. I then shot the scene using various focusing techniques during image capture and then post processing using stacking software. The result is a sharp image all the way through the scene.
This is a great technique for product and macro photography, but I also hope to incorporate it in my portrait and perhaps architectural work.
From left to right, the first image was processed using Helicon Focus to stack the images. The centre image used Photoshop to stack the images, notice the missing information when zoomed in. The conclusion here is that Photoshop is not always the best tool for the job. The black and white image is a comparison to show tones.
