Tell me how you are doing it, I've only just learned how to press that button on the top....
Bill Phillips: There are quite a few videos on you tube. The had some bloke with more equipment than you could shake a stick at to do it. Happily there were some from more normal people! My fist couple of tries were a complete disaster!

Fit for a Biship!
Bill Phillips: I wonder whether the Bishop of Worcester needs any more candlesticks
I love how shiny it is!
Bill Phillips: I had just cleaned the brass with good old Brasso....Frank will explain what Brasso is.

If I get REALLY BORED I'll try this myself
Bill Phillips: It is very enjoyable. I intend to use the technique on flowers at some stage

Wonderful due to your treatment!
Bill Phillips: Thank you Philine. This candlestick and another couple belonged to Angela's mum

Hmmm so shiny .... glitzy ... looks unreal ...but my god you must have spent hours on this ....I would have used brasso and got the job done in five minutes
Bill Phillips: This was cleaned using Brasso....or what used to be called Dura glit the wadding brass cleaner. I love the glow of freshly polished brass. You have clearly never cleaned brass or you would know it doesn't take 5 minutes gringrin

EXTRA BONUS RATINGS BOOSTER

Trim has what I would describe as a brass neck..
Bill Phillips: He has never got his hands dirty in his life

You are clever, Bill!
Bill Phillips: Photoshop and the camera are the clever ones Lisl. I have just realised that the camera will do all the focussing and I don't have to!
Did we have focus stacking in the days of film no ,so why do I need it now.
Bill Phillips: You possibly don't but some people possibly do

You’ve failed, the background is out of focus.
Bill Phillips: Still learning. The two objects are almost in focus. The background is not supposed to be in focus
Very good start Bill, I've never tried it, as yet, but one day perhaps. My Photoshop is a bit old but I have Affinity which is geared up for this type of work.
Bill Phillips: It has been round on Photoshop for about 10 years I think. The XT2 had the ability to do a set of pictures focus stacked added on the last firmware update. My first efforts were done manually altering the focus each time. Using the in camera feature it does it for you and can do up to 999 pictures. I have been trying that but so far the results have been poor. I am clearly not doing it right! Mind you I tried doing 200 raw files...that was a big mistake gringringrin

I'm aware of focus stacking but never tried it. T+Rgis has come out well.
Bill Phillips: T+Rgis?

With your full frame camera and sturdy tripod I would think you would get some amazing results
I wouldn't know where to start - or why!
Bill Phillips: It has its uses Tom. For example in macro photography where you might have a very shallow depth of field but want to get everything from front to back in focus
I have a cut on my finger from polishing copper last week using Brasso. Like magic. Well done on your newly learned technique.
Bill Phillips: There is something very satisfying about polishing brass
