bracket focus stack - Dustin Waits

EXPOSURE BRACKETING AND FOCUS STACKING WORKSHOP: In this workshop I cover the skills needed to produce images using exposure bracketing and focus stacking techniques. This is an excellent course for the outdoor photographer who wants to learn how to capture the most detail in a scene with bright highlights and deep shadows to produce brilliantly exposed photographs with a higher dynamic range than a single exposure could typically produce. The focus stacking instruction is useful for extending the depth of field for maximum sharpness throughout the composition. This workshop is recommended for those who have already taken my Intro to Photography Workshop, or are already familiar and comfortable with the basics of photography. It is also recommended to take my Post Processing / Retouching Workshop in tandem or before this workshop is completed.
