Focus stacking (landscape or real estate) Photography

These are my personal approach in shooting landscape or real estate ,with emphasis in focus stacking

Focus stacking (landscape or real estate) Photography
- a quick, intermediate to advanced guide


Shoot in raw mode (no discussions here) :)


  • - manual focus
  • - shoot -0 to .7 meters (depending on the lens), might be .3 on other lens
  • - shoot 1.5 m
  • - shoot 3.5 m
  • - shoot infinity


  • f8 -  f11 for real estate
  • f16 - f22 (i would go for f16)

ISO 100 (always on a tripod for these stacking projects)

Shutter Speed (would depend on the situation, sometimes AV mode would suffice for these situations)

Post Processing

  • - Process all images in Lightroom or Photoshop Camera raw
  • - sync settings
  • - export as TIFF (lossless compression, psd is ok too)
  • - in photoshop (open all images) and use File>Scripts> Load files into stack
  • - tick the box that says Automatically align layers
  • - Lets combine the focus now, select all layers
  • - Use Edit > Auto Blend layers, select Stack Images
  • - Export as TIFF or PSD, and also export a jpeg (for web)
Below is a video which I used as a guide but also created my own workflow (above)
