Why Focus Stack by Qasim Syed

Event info

Why stack?

 The first essential is to understand why Focus Stacking is such a powerful tool and then when and how to use it. The talk will cover a wide range of topics from equipment and settings to tips, techniques and software. It is aimed at those who want to learn a new skill and perhaps even seasoned “stackers” might learn a thing or two. This session will be the first part of a series to cover related topics, hopefully including workshops in the not-to-distant future.

 Whilst the talk is mainly targeted at macro subjects, there will be discussions over its use in other genres including landscape and architecture.

 There will be a Q&A at the end.

 Qasim Syed is a Full-time Doctor working in London. Over the past 8 years, nature photography has been a welcome escape from his busy schedule. All images for his ARPS (viewable on the RPS website) were taken using the stacking technique.   

 He has gained awards in the Societies Photographer of the Year 2020 for Wildlife and Macro. He has also achieved numerous other National and International Awards. A finalist in the Macro Art Genre for the International Garden Photographer of the Year 2020. His work has been exhibited and featured in magazines and national press.
