Slices - Coins

To go with Depth of field magic  (project)

The challenge was to take a photo five coins deep at an angle.


The image above shows the arrangement of the camera and coins, and on the right a view over the camera at the coins.

Slices set  - click here to download zip file.

We have used a series of 19 photos that are focused at different points, and have combined the sharpest parts of each to produce a single sharp photograph through the focusing range.

You can download this as a zip file that includes the 19 source photos plus the resulting image I created with Helicon Focus.

To build your own photo with this set of slices you don't need the output file, this has a longer name, while the slices are just a list of image numbers in order.  So put just the slice images into a folder where you can find it.

You can also look at any of these files on any photo viewer or editor. They are all jpg's.

To see a large copy the resulting image in a new browser window, that I produced, and which has had no further editing click here.

Details of what to do is included in the Depth of field magic  (project), that is based upon these images. It also has photos of sections of the resulting image.

How these slices were created is covered in the article Capturing slices with a Nikon DSLR.

Animation of what is happening

The animation available from the link below illustrates this, shown at 25% size. The top image is showing the images taken one by one, the display above shows you which one it is and clicking on any of these will show that shot, stopping the animation. Below this is a static image that is the result, and below this image is a set of controls to control the top image display, it can be stopped, started, slowed down or speeded up.
