I've been envious of some of the macro photos I've seen and
wondered why I couldn't quite get my shots super sharp like them.
"Photo Stacking" is the answer.
I used CombineZM software (free)
but first, I took a few shots
focusing progressively from front to mid-point,
Then I processed these photos in CombineZM;
this is my first attempt to focus stack and I was impressed with the results.
To download CombineZM software (here)
and a tutorial (here).
It's very simple, and worth a try if you're after a sharper image.
There are more advanced ways to stack photos, but
I wanted an easier way to do this process, for now, anyway.
My best tip would be to overlap the focus areas so there are
no fuzzy areas scattered through your nice sharp focus.
If you don't overlap your stacked photo (caraway seeds)
will end up like this one (above).
And secondly, save the cropping to after processing the photos
because you might have blurry edges to remove.
Have fun and play with this software!
