Deep Stacking with the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Using Nikon D850 'Focus shift shooting'

Get Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art at B&H Photo.

See my focus stacking how-to (to be expanding soon) in Making Sharp Images and focus stacking related pages.


I’ve been pushing the limits of focus stacking in various vectoral ways, wondering just how far I could push it, this time in yet another way, just having done so at f/1.8: what about deep near-to-far stacking with an 85mm for landscape photography, with a strong wind no less?

The full 45-megapixel 8K version of the image below can be viewed in this series of examples:

Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Examples: Eastern Sierra

Images up to full 45-megapixel resolution and in both color and black and white.

Below, this cannot be done with an 85mm (or 50mm or 35mm) without focus stacking—not a fraction of the detail at any aperture. Image stacked with Zerene Stacker available at Zerene Systems.
