On article Focus Stacking in Macro Photography (131 comments in total)

This was a great sharing.

I just start to venture into focus stacking.
I found out there are 3 methods to capture the photos for focus stacking:

1. macro rail which move your camera (variable distance between subject and camera)
2. macro rail which move your lens (fixed distance between camera body and subject)
3. change focus point by turning the lens focus ring

Personally I tried option #1 and #3. Result looks fine at zoom out view. If you zoom in, certain part of the object (after stack) was not stacked properly. Guess due to low contrast of the subject and software not capable enough to process it.

Anyone have tried option #2? Do you know what is the pro and cons on those 3 options above?

Hope some one can guide on this.

Thanks in advance.
