This tree stands alongside the trail that bypasses the washout of the Elwha River road. A week ago I took a photo of it and was disappointed at the depth of field. (not surprising since it was in the forest and fairly dark)
I returned with a tripod and tried out the focus stacking feature on my Nikon D850. I set the interval at the shortest, focused as near as I could (about foot with the Nikon 24-85mm), and let the camera do the rest. It took 28 shots with progressive focusing out to infinity (or at least the top of the tree).
I used HeliconFocus to combine the in focus part of each image into one gigantic 265MB tif file. I wish the top wasn’t so overexposed… maybe I should go back and do several stacks and combine them into an HDR Gigapixel monster!
