Macro Photography using Photoshop Focus Stacking
- August 24, 2017
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Bring your camera for this class followed by a practicum* opportunity led by photographer John Baltz.
Focus stacking involves taking several photos of an object, each with a slightly different point of focus, then processing those many images into one image with software such as Photoshop or Helicon Focus. When using this process in macro photography it can produce an image that is sharp and clear beyond the limits of your camera and lens.
However, taking macro images to allow for the best image stacking requires some special attention and equipment. During this hands-on class, you will learn the tricks to take a great macro image of flowers using your camera, with the aid of a tripod, shutter release, mirror lock-up, and a rail. We will then use those images to learn how to create a single sharp image using image stacking in Photoshop. Feel free to bring your own computer with Photoshop or take a turn using the computer available for the class.
* Camera and participation in the practicum portion of the class is not required.
