Lisa, I am intrigued by this in camera stacking. I do not believe my camera has that functionality. Your choice of subject matter works on a couple levels. The static building enhances the movement of the clouds and the choice of a church adds a bit of a mystical dimension.   Posted: 02/08/2021 23:51:59

Camera stacking is really fun, and efficient since you do not need to do all of the work in PS. I love being able to see the image develop on the back of the camera.

Daylight live composite for cloud Stacking takes one base image for the ambient light exposure and then "freezes" those pixels and subsequent images are added on using lighten blend mode -- only new light is added.

You can cloud stack in PS. Take lots (in this case 101) of sequential images and stack them and change the blend mode of all but one to lighten blend mode and then put all (but one in a group) and put a mask on the group and mask the foreground back in.   Posted: 02/16/2021 21:49:53

Crazy, fun skies! I love how you are trying new things, especially in areas that I have never been exposed to!   Posted: 02/16/2021 21:33:22

Lisa, great image with sharp church and cloud movements! You and your equipment are really at the forefront of technology.

I can't wait to see your coming experimentations.   Posted: 02/21/2021 11:30:59
