photoblog image Stacked dog

Stacked dog

An attempt at focus stacking. This is from 10 images focussed from closest to furthest...hopefully. He had a chipped ear which I have tried to restore in photoshop along with some other blemishes.

Well, as long as its making you happy Bill. I have discovered NUMEROUS things that my camera will do !
Bill Phillips: I actually got the manual out for my camera yesterday!
You've done a nice job!!
Bill Phillips: Thank you kindly E
Bravo, on ne voit pas que l'oreille a été restaurée.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Martine...just wish I could restore it that easily in reality!

I think Fido bumped his snout, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Funnily enough I think it has always looked like that!

Woof!
Bill Phillips: I spend hours trying something new and that is the best you can come up with?
I have no idea what you're talking about (how to stack images), Bill, but it looks fabulous, even though the dog's face seems a bit sad. Maybe you had him sit for way too long??
Bill Phillips: Kathryn loves these Sylvac figures and collects them. We are going to give her this one which was Angie's mum's I think

You could have helped Angie with all the household chores ....
Bill Phillips: I already have, and done some of the cooking. this is my leisure time activity comrade

Like Ginnie I have no idea what you are talking about, and I have to look in my dictionary for some words I don't know, but a nice dog picture.
Bill Phillips: I am just having some fun learning new things Philine.

I can see what you mean, Bill, and it gives an interesting background. Our parent's generation used to have these dogs as wedding presents
Bill Phillips: Sylvac was very popular. Kathryn loves it and has quite a nice little collection now, this one will be added to it

What would we do without the manual, Bill. I found out yesterday to get rid of sound from a video and have some music in..... to be continued.
I did some experimenting with capturing "THINGS"...
Bill Phillips: The problem with the manuals is finding what you are looking for!

Now I wonder how it will work to stack focus plus exposure variations.
Bill Phillips: I think that is more of a consideration when using this process to do landscapes where the light can change rapidly. Mind you I think with landscapes you probably don't need a huge number of exposures. I am still at the very early leaning stage!

You done good Bill. Not sure this image would necessarily need stacking software.
Bill Phillips: Possibly not but it is surprising how shallow the Depth of field is with a 60mm macro lens
You have been in lockdown far too long,it’s a tripod jod.Not much use for street shots..
Bill Phillips: Of course it is. On the Fuji XT2 you can take up to 999 pictures at varying intervals and with varying time gaps in between. I think if you did that showing in Raw would be a big mistake!
It's fun to have a go at something different and there is little prospect of going anywhere in the near future
What a sad-eyed pup. Very 3D looking.
Bill Phillips: The sad eyes do add to his appeal
This is a fine example of this technique Bill, I like the dolefull expression on the dogs face.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Brian. Our Kathryn is a big fan of this Sylvac stuff

you did an exceptional job
Bill Phillips: Thank you very much Sherri
I have never tried this technique Bill, but it looks like a good result, all nice and sharp smile
Bill Phillips: It sounded easy in principle, but judging by the number of dud results I have managed it isn't grin

I admire your patience, Bill. I may have tried two or three images at the most. No sign of chipped ear so you've done a good job.
Bill Phillips: The XT2 lets you do up to 999 exposures automatically adjusting the focus each time! Imagine trying to load all them into photoshop
Please explain what you do then.
