Blending Images with Various Focal Points with Photoshop

For this video I’ve taken four photographs, all focused on a different Lego figure. Using Photoshop I’m going to blend them together so that I get one, in focus image. This technique is great for macro photography for shooting flowers, insects and other small objects.

  1. I’m glad the finally added this feature.
    NIce tutorial.

  2. This is awesome tutorial. Thanks a lot for this one.
    If am right the same technique can be used for increasing the depth in a Landscape image by shooting the image at different focus points ? Very motivated to go out and shoot something on the field and apply this technique.


  3. Absolutely, but you’d probably be better off increasing your F stop, a lot less hassle. This technique works best in the opposite direction, with macro.
