Using Photoshop Focus stacking is a technique for extending a digital image's apparent depth of field.

A number of images are taken using different focusing points. Use a TRIPOD!

Ensure that you use the same APERTURE for each image.

The images are ALIGNED in Photoshop and blended together. Use a TRIPOD.

Take enough photographic images to cover the full dynamic range of the scene. Use the RAW camera file format.

Determine the correct exposure. Then take a series of images 2 STOPS under, 1 STOP under, Correct Exposure, 1 STOP over, 2 STOPS over.

Open the images in either BRIDGE or PHOTOSHOP and go to AUTOMATE and MERGE to HDR. Kings Cross Station, London Liverpool Docks Penarth Pier, South Wales Brighton Pier © larrie paul tiernan 2012 © larrie paul tiernan 2012 Other Techniques for Architectural Photography Create a Panorama

Before fitting the 10 Stopper Filter, first compose your image.
This also includes focusing the image. You lose TEN STOPS.

Take a meter reading without the filter in place, and set your
desired aperture . Using MANUAL MODE experiment with exposures. These can vary from 8secs to 30minutes depending on lighting. See Chart

Always use the sturdiest tripod you can when making long
exposures, and take care not to knock the camera or tripod.

Cover your viewfinder before releasing the shutter to avoid
light encroaching onto the sensor or film and causing flare. Experiment ! Research Research location for an Architectural assignment
Assess lighting requirements for a specific location shoot
Select and use appropriate equipment, technique and materials
Analyze and evaluate images produced
