Focus Stacking Tutorial - Part 8 Final Summary
- Main image taken with the Olympus E-M1 III and 60mm macro lens + extension tubes.
- Shot at F5.6, 1/2Sec, ISO200

The purpose of this post is to summarize how I create my focus stacked images
The main image above is a focused stacked image of a geranium flower using the techniques described in my focus stacking tutorial series.
The tutorial goes into quite some detail, with text, images and videos showing you how, for example, you can create the main image above. My aim was to show you how I create my flower and insect macro images in the studio, and to give anyone who would like to do the same, some pointers on how to do so.
I show you how to find/catch your subject and to prepare it for photographing - Parts 1 and 2 (see below at the end of this post links to all the parts in the series).
I show you the equipment that I use, giving you an idea of what you will need to shoot your images - Part 4.
I show you my camera settings for macro photography and how I shoot the stack - Part 5.
I then describe the software that I use for processing and editing the stack, showing you how I use this software to create a final focus stacked image- Parts 6 and 7.
Below are some more focus stacked images of the same flower.

Thanks for taking a look at my photography
