July, 13, 2021 – Focus Stacking.

At this meeting Eric Whitenton will do a presentation on Focus Stacking. He will discuss what Focus Stacking is and will discuss in more detail the following attributes:

●Two main techniques: One at a time versus all at once.

–One at a time has one or two steps.

●Acquiring the slices.

–Done automatically by a lens (Example from Internet).

–Camera moved by hand (Example from Internet).

–Camera on a linear slide

(My examples: 1.product photography) 2.UV and visible light moth 3.microphotography).

–FYI, just put camera on a rotational slide, and now you also have panoramic imaging


–In camera, saving only finished photo. Do not have to store large volumes of data.

–In post. Can fix issues if any occur.–All at once always has two steps.

●Light Field cameras. Sacrifice resolution to avoid motion issues.

●For current generation of cameras, you must process

(My example from Lytro camera. Include demo of determining focus in post.)
