Let's give focused stacking a try here.…Essentially the scenario that I'm trying to capture…is, I have a close-up shot of this tree.…I'm shooting at a pretty wide-open shot here, I'm at…50 millimeters, and I want the tree in focus, but then…as we get further out, we've got this sort of spread…of ivy here, and I want to get that in focus, too.…Well, the challenge here is it's hard to get that with a…single shot, so what I need to do is actually take multiple…exposures, moving the focus point around, and I can stack those…together in an app like Photoshop and sort of pull it together.…
Now, you can do this manually or take advantage of some automated features.…Let's start with a manual take.…So what I'm going to do here is I'm going to…tap on the screen to set my focus point.…And I basically tapped right on the ivy on the side of the tree here to set it.…Now one of the things I like…to do, make it a little bit easier to know…where the starting point is, is make a visual slate.…So I'll just put my hand in front of the camera here.…
These techniques work well both in the studio and in the field, so you'll be prepared for all tethered shooting scenarios.
