My love of VC has turned me into an amateur photographer. I've been reading about a technique of macro shots called Focus Stacking. One takes multiple pictures with all the exact same settings, except for a different focal point. Then software stiches it all together to create one photo where everything is in focus. (Those of us that take watch macro pictures, especially movements, know that when you focus on one section of the watch...the rest becomes blurry due to the depth of field, especially when the movment is not all in one focus plane).
This is my second, and quick, attempt at focus stacking (first attempt was a miserable failure). It is made up of 20 pictures in a 5x4 grid. My technique obviously needs a lot of work, but just to give you a sense of what can be done:
You can tell by the edges (strap and lugs) that the movement was at an angle from the camera lens so the top of the picture was further away from the lens than the lower part of the picture. This would normally make only a portion of the movement in focus, while the rest would be blurry. Hopefully you can see that the entire movement is pretty much in focus.
