Stacked Image Workshop
Stacked image photography allows you to create images of extraordinary depth, sharpness, and detail. In this hands-on workshop using your own digital camera (manual focus required), you'll take a series of photos of the same subject, focusing each shot on a different area. You will then combine these photos using a special software to produce one final breathtaking image. You will walk away from this class with all the techniques, equipment, and software tips you need to continue refining this process at home. Please bring your laptop to class, with the free 30-day trial software already downloaded, you will receive an email with the link for this by the instructor.
