How to Properly Focus Stack Moving Water in Landscape Photos

Focus stacking is one of the most useful techniques a landscape photographer can have in their bag of tricks, making it easy to create images that are ultra-sharp across the entire frame. However, it can be a bit tricky when you have moving water in the frame. This great video tutorial will show you how to properly focus stack such a photo to get the best possible results. 

Coming to you from Alister Benn of Expressive Photography, this helpful video tutorial will show you how to focus stack landscape images with moving water. Focus stacking is normally a fairly straightforward technique and an effective way to increase the sharpness of your images, but it becomes a bit more complicated when you have elements moving across the frame. That being said, it is still a worthwhile technique even in these situations, as it really is the best way to get photos that are perfectly crisp from corner to corner. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Benn.
