Kathy Adams Clark
– Establishing Your Nature Photography Business

Seldom is there enough depth of field (that is, range of sharpness) in an image, especially if the photographer is working with telephotos or in macro. Digital imaging is offering photographers techniques to extend depth of field beyond that which can be achieved with traditional manipulation of exposure or by using specialized lenses.  This program offers a complete discussion and demonstration of the concepts and technique of stacking, or compositing a series of images that capture a full range of sharp focus throughout the image. The program will cover the following topics:

Overview of Methods to increase Depth of Field
- Stopping Down, Tilt/Shift, Stacking.
Applications and Techniques for Stacking Images.
- Stacking for landscapes and larger subjects
- Manual stacking technique
- High-magnification stacking, flowers, bugs and snowflakes
- Introduction to the StackShot
Software Programs for Assembly of Stacked Images
- Zerene Stacker
- Helicon Focus
- Photoshop CS

In this digital age, it’s apparent that photography is not what it used to be. Cogent and intuitive software plugins have given us remarkable and unlimited ability to create whatever we can see in our imaginations. No longer does one have to master complicated Photoshop techniques.

 

This presentation will discuss and illustrate the use many of the most popular and cogent plugins on the market today. Images will illustrate the creative use of Nik Plugins; Alien Skin’s Bokeh, Snap Art, and Exposure 2; and Topaz Labs. Given the rapid popularity of iPhoneography, there will be an iPhone image presentation while discussing apps and what to look for and processing techniques.
