Who doesn’t love a nice tack-sharp flower photo? Or a beautiful landscape, in focus from foreground to background? These images can be created effortlessly, but sometimes, there may be a little more effort than you might think!
Join Hunt’s Photo Educator Emily Hojnowski for a workshop involving Focus Stacking–the process of combining multiple images, each with a different focal point, in order to create an image with far greater depth of field in which all (or most) of the image is in focus!
Our workshop will begin with our Intro to Focus Stacking class (Tuesday, January 23rd). Your registration to this workshop will INCLUDE that class.
On Saturday January 27th, we will work hands-on in the classroom creating focus stacks. We will discuss a myriad of factors, from subject and composition to camera settings, tripod effectiveness, and more! About 3/4 through the workshop, we will stop photographing and review the stacks on your computer. (While it’s great to bring your computer, if you cannot, you are welcome to hand the files off to us and we will demo the process in class with your images.) We will provide feedback, then give an assignment to create ANOTHER focus stack on your own before our image review session on Monday February 5th!
This is a fantastic opportunity to workshop this process from start to finish, and receive feedback along the way!
