Have you ever run into a situation where you had multiple animals in the frame and just couldn’t find a way to keep them all sharp at the same time – even when you stopped down?
This is actually a really common problem for close and mid-range shots of small to medium-sized wildlife. In fact, most of the time there’s no conventional way to make both animals sharp unless they are on the same focus plane.
However, there is a really cool unconventional way to do it! In this video, I’ll show you a handy field / Photoshop technique that will allow you to do the impossible. Check it out!
NOTE – Update!
A YouTube commenter mentioned that another good way to align images manually if Auto Align doesn’t work. Instead of dropping opacity, switch the blend mode of the top image to “Difference”. Then, make it as dark / black as you can when lining them up. Once lined up, switch the blend mode back to Normal mode. Works really well – I think I may even like it better.
