Focus Stacking


I have been told that focus stacking lets you achieve a large depth-of-field in any condition. How do you do it?

Focus stacking is a digital technique that requires multiple pictures and postproduction to achieve a large depth-of-field. Once you have decided the frame, take multiple photographs from the exact spot with different areas of the frame in focus. Combine these images by blending multiple layers in a software like Adobe Photoshop. Focus stacking requires a sturdy tripod and more importantly, a lot of patience.
