The discussion will include techniques for taking the ‘stack’ photos, a list of camera models with focus stacking capabilities built-in, necessary equipment that is useful in taking the photos, and software used to process the images. There will be a live demo of taking a series of Focus Stack images and then processing those images through a couple of different software packages.
