Fujifilm GF 32-64mm f/4 Focus Stack: Sunlit Picnic Table in Snow Squall

Fujifilm GF 32-64mm f/4 R LM WR

See my Fujifilm GF wish list.

Focus stacking using Zerene Stacker. See my tutorial/how-to in Making Sharp Images.

Even at f/11 at 33mm, depth of field is very limited, a confounding issue with medium format, since diffraction rapidly kills image quality past f/11. Hence focus stacking is highly relevant for landscape shooting or tabletop shooting where one wishes for the image to retain reasonably good contrast (which f/16 would destroy) and yet much more depth of field is needed than a single shot can provide.

Here I wanted to see what I could do to make a near-to-far composition under challenging conditions (blowing snow, moving water) with focus stacking.

Fujifilm GF 32-64mm f/4 Focus Stack: Sunlit Picnic Table in Snow Squall

Image sizes up to full resolution.

Presented in both black and white and color, with commentary on the GFX sensor quality.

A late-March snow squall made for blowing snow and sun for a brief time, but with temperatures well below freezing and very strong wind, I sought shelter in the car not long after shooting this scene, though the table looked to have been pleasant for lunch, had the sun been warmer and the wind absent. The sun had been a bit stronger before could set up the shot, but at least I got some good directional light onto the table.
