Anyone who has worked with a macro lens recognizes that it can be a real challenge to achieve a sharp subject from front to back and still maintain a nice, soft, defocused background. In fact, it’s often an impossible task.
Enter focus bracketing and focus stacking. The concept is simple: Take a series of photos with slightly varied focus and composite the in-focus areas. Olympus has automated the process so that you can achieve the maximum depth of field and get the final stacked image – all in your Olympus camera! This same concept can also be used to create landscape images with incredible depth of field.
Join OM Ambassador Chris McGinnis for this hands-on workshop on how to use the focus bracketing and stacking features built into Olympus OM-D and OM SYSTEM cameras. You will learn the basics of focus bracketing and stacking, the camera controls that will guarantee better success, and some alternative post-processing options available for stacking bracketed series.
