Re: Three More Stacked

I keep a tripod in the car, WhyNot, but I'm not eager to carry it more than one hundred feet. I'm getting better at getting successful stacks hand held, but only standing fairly straight. A crouch, bend or squat makes me too unsteady to get over 50%.

Of course for flowers, but I'm experimenting with other types. This staircase going down to the beach was a good excuse to try it on a landscape. Rich

This at 11, 3 and stacked in camera. Rich

Just out of curiosity why stack?  The hyperfocal distance for a 15mm lens @ f/18 is just under 3 feet and everything from about 1.5 feet to infinity should be perceived to be in focus unless you've enlarged the print to several feet and let the viewer put his nose on it , as I understand it .....   Just curious as to what you get from stacking????
