Focus stacking, also known as focal plane merging or focus blending, is the process of combining multiple images taken at different focus distances. This is how many photographers are able to get entire subjects in focus even if the depth of field is very shallow. It is very popular in macro photography but it can also be very helpful for landscape photographers. Watch my tutorial below to see how I was able to get my entire scene in focus when normally I’d be experiencing blur due to diffraction, which often occurs in lenses after a certain f-stop is reached.
