25 Tutorials on Close-up, Macro, and Focus Stacking
« on: April 12, 2013, 06:13:02 AM »

In my spare time, I managed to put some of my experience with close-up and macro photography into a set of videos. I also have several free books on macro and focus stacking. They can be found here, for those interested:

Many thanks Michael, I've downloaded the e-books "Nature in the Backyard" and "The art of focusstacking". I'll download the other e-books on this subject too. "Nature in Backyard" could help to shoot the frogs in my favorite pool. Next early June they fall in love...

michael - thank you for this

i have tried some stacking - not at all happy... with most... i will post one below that i was 'surprised' with added liquify filter...

beginning to hate my ball heads for close up work - saving for a cube - will follow all of your series to see if your mindset sends me to some other path....

i am going to dedicate time to frogs... here in minneapolis as i plan to spend months this next winter or next after in panama / costa rica shooting frogs and native orchids...  in natural habitats...

i will review all of your videos!

huge thanks

Phil
