Focus Stacking – The Technique


Focus Stacking – Macro shots that are continuously sharp from front-to-back – that is the goal of every macro photographer. The smaller the object being photographed and the lesser the distance, the narrower the area of focus becomes. With full-frame cameras, this field of focus can amount to less than a millimetre. The solution to the problem: photograph the object using multiple focal planes and FOCUS projects 3 professional will seamlessly assemble the photos together – all with the utmost speed and precision.



How FOCUS projects 3 professional Works


Take a sharpness series of your subject. Macro objects and normal focal length are especially good for this. For full format cameras, it is custom to use blending between eight and eleven. Five or more shots with different focus layers are ideal to achieve continuous sharpness. FOCUS projects 3 professional assembles the images together and establishes a perfect, complete picture with sharpness from front-to-back. Give it a try!

Hot stuff!


There is no objective in the world that captures everything completely crisply, no matter how expensive it is. Some photographers have already spent a fortune trying. I simply use FOCUS projects to collect the sharpness information from multiple images. And the nice thing about it is, that at every time it was sharp somewhere! Whoever has experience in the professional or semi-professional photography field knows how tedious and demanding this work can be, and definitely wishes that they had discovered the goldmine that is FOCUS projects professional years ago.
