Seldom is there enough depth of field (that is, range of sharpness) in an image, especially if the photographer is working with telephotos or in macro. Digital imaging is offering photographers techniques to extend depth of field beyond that which can be achieved with traditional manipulation of exposure or by using specialized lenses. This program offers a complete discussion and demonstration of the concepts and technique of stacking, or compositing a series of images that capture a full range of sharp focus throughout the image.
