First Experiment with Focus Stacking
I'm trying out photo stacking with macro photos. This is one of my first experiments, I think the 4th attempt with this setup. Overall I'm pretty happy with the result but I'm a tad disappointed that the near face of the ring isn't as sharp as I would like. Anyone have any tips for improving?
Canon FD 135mm f/2.5 (set at f/16)
40(ish)mm of extension tubes
1/50sec shutter (silent shutter mode)
My first instinct is that the shutter speed was a tad too low and was possibly picking up some small vibrations from the slider or something. Second instinct is that the lens itself just isn't that sharp (haven't had a lot of experience with this one).
Any other thoughts?
