    Thumbs up DOF image Stacking

    Hello All,
    Well, I thought I would share a couple of images I did using DOF method. Each picture was a set of 20 images.

    I have been disappointed in taking picture because; for the most part only the part close to the lens would be infocus and the edges would be blurred/out of focus. So let's have a look, shall we.

    Now I hope you download them and zoom-zoom. See how they stay in focus? I'm happy. Now if it didn't show all the wear and tear on them
    No adjustments done to them. click.click.stack'em.

    Thanks for looking.
    btw i use this software for the stacking.... http://www.heliconsoft.com/heliconfocus.html

    Focus stacking is a powerful technique for extending a photo's apparent depth of field. It's perhaps most useful in close-up and macro photography, since the camera lens's highest f-stop is often insufficient to render everything in focus. It can even overcome the otherwise unavoidable sharpness loss from diffraction.

    Interesting. I know a couple of people who talk about things like that but it's over my head.

    Re: DOF image Stacking BACK-LIGHT

    Okay gang, I thought I would use the same setup to back light so marbles, to see if it would bring out any detail and what not.
    Let have a look.....

    Re: DOF image Stacking ... having fun.

    Well, thought I would try something different.
    This image was created with a series of 60 pictures.
    Came out pretty cool. Bet it wouldn't be too hard to create a 3d image.



    Hmmmm... pretty cool, huh?

    EDIT Ok, here's another one 90 pic's.

    http://personalpages.tds.net/~bilmay...90picStack.jpg

    btw, these are shot with a stock canon a620 in manual focus facing down on mounted to an antique photo-negative thing. 2 lights and my focus set at about 7.3 mm (very close to touching the lens)

    I really don't know anything about this kind of thing. But I think I know cool when I see it, and that last pic is cool! The depth is remarkable. Do you actually change the focus slightly for each consecutive pic before you stack them?

    Re: DOF image Stacking

    Hey Ric, No I just set the focus for the Near Distance and I have a script in my camera that auto advance's the focus for me. So 90 images in about 2 minutes... I'm going to get another camera out and take a picture of the set up so you guys can see what I'm talking about a little better and far as equipment goes.

    Re: DOF image Stacking




    Okay, here's what I'm using. You can see that the camera is attached to the antique photo-negative enlarger; stripped out so I just have the guts of it. The top knob adj everything; while the lower knob just does the fine adjusting. The black thing is the glass out of that equipment, I put a sock over it so I wouldn't get hot spots. I can use this as well for when I'm back lighting marbles with an old lava lamp base (not pictured) Also not pictured is a light tent that can surround the camera. I have an old TV in the background so I can see what I'm doing. The stand is an old TV tray that I drilled a hole in to mount the enlarger. That gold bee thing is a overhead light cover....it great for hold marbles so they don't move around. But that's about it.
