Can someone explain focus stacking ?
3 months ago

This months photo mags are full of landscape tutorials with sections on focus stacking.

Back in the day you couldn't focus stack with film but chose a small aperture and used depth of field to ensure all parts of the image were sharp.

Is there something inherent in digital imagery / equipment that prevents doing it old "school" ?
