Focus Stacking Advice Please
Jul 10, 2012

Just getting started with macro and flash. I have a Nikon D800 with 105 Micro, Nikon R1 closeup flash system, SB-910 on a stand. I'm using Helicon Focus trial. My settings are lens manual focus, VR off, AF switch to manual. Camera set to matrix exposure, apeture priority, camera flash to commander, flash sync 1/320. Flashes set to gr a, ch1 with 910 on TTL Remote.

I shot a series at F2.5. Camera went to 3.4. Everything seemed to work fine, but Helicon reported 118% difference in brightness between images, and i do not understand how that could happen. The images appear to be OK. My results at this minimum DOF were not good. They were pretty blurry. My results at F8 were much better. I don't get it.

Any suggestions?
