Slicing Up Depth Of Field
Formulas And Focus • Size, Weight And Will it Float? • From JPEG To RAW • Charging Overseas Without A Charger • Bifocal Focus Formulas And Focus
I shoot a lot of wildflowers and have tinkered a bit with Helicon Focus Software. The main objective is, of course, the soft background with a sharp subject. Do you have any formulas for the number of slices at various magnifications? I use a Really Right Stuff focusing rail and a Canon 90mm tilt/shift with and without extension tubes.
