    Also the second pic I deliberately focused close.. I did have a few issues with some kinda focus lock, but found a tutorial on the web, so now I believe I have my settings correct.

    Zerene is probably the best but certainly not the cheapest stacking software. AFAIK, Lightroom doesn't do focus stacking, yet.

    I'm 71 years old. I have done film photography most of my life. Self taught. This digital stuff is new to me. So many more options in a digital camera. So much to learn. After watching Hark's video I bought the guys E-book on Nikon focus systems..

    I remember when I switched from an N90s to a D90. I wound up sitting down with the user manual to decipher how it worked. Since you are already familiar with the exposure triangle, you are already ahead of the game. If you are ever interested, the same guy has a video on Back Button Focus. If you ever decide to shoot moving subjects (sports, birds, etc), his setting explanation for BBF is excellent. I never tried AF-C until I switched to BBF for birds.

    And even if you aren't interested in BBF, the video is still worth watching just for the understanding of additional camera features and the option to program different buttons. Glad the video you watched was helpful.
