Focus Stacking Tutorial

In part two of my three-part tutorial series, I show you how I photograph and blend five different exposures together with varying depths of field. Follow along as I give you an in-depth look into my editing workflow using Adobe Photoshop to align various exposures, apply layer adjustments, create and edit layer masks, incorporate dodge and burn layers, apply noise reduction, and make perspective adjustments. This tutorial is designed for intermediate to advanced users who already have experience using Adobe Photoshop and are familiar with layer masks. If you are new to Photoshop, I recommend watching our ‘Blending Exposures’ tutorial as a prerequisite for this course.
