I would like to take a portrait with a 50mm lens, where both the subject and the background are sharp. The usual way to do this would be to either switch to a wide-angle lens or to dial-down the aperture, but I'm wondering if this is possible with focus stacking? The approximate workflow would look like this:
- Take a picture of the person from a tripod
- Have the person quickly step out of the frame
- Take a picture of the background
- Merge the photos in post-processing - how to do this?
I'm looking for a way to do step 4 automatically, rather than through painstaking post-processing work in Photoshop. I presume this should be possible with modern software.
