Focus Stacking Panoramas
I've combined two techniques: focus stacking and stitching panoramas using Photoshop CS6. The original attempt, for a 50-image panorama, took 50 minutes to run. Along the way found a shortcut that cut the time down to 10 minutes.
My camera has a touch screen that can be used to focus and take pictures. This was utilized for focus stacking. I just touched the places I wanted to be in focus, then repositioned the camera to the next place in the panorama. Painting with light!
