I'd like to take a portrait with a 50mm lens, where the subject and the background are sharp. The usual method is to switch to a wide-angle lens or reduce the aperture, but I wonder if this is possible with the focus stack. The approximate workflow would look like this:
- Take a picture of the person from a tripod
- Ask the person to quickly get out of the frame
- Take a picture of the background
- Merge photos into post processing – how to do that?
I am looking for a way to perform step 4 automatically, rather than undergoing a tedious post – processing job in Photoshop. I guess that should be possible with modern software.
