Honestly speaking, i also think making more than 10 shots is too much, i really don't know why some photographers like to go so deep too much technical and make it as a hard-core, i really feel sorry who have long time to waste rather than enjoy shooting, and i bought TS lens for this purpose, so i don't need to shoot many shots for stacking, and if i will do then mostly i will go with 4-5 shots at most and using f8 at least.

He said he teaches workshops, and he is a perfecitonist, and it gives him best results, and allows him to do gallery prints, etc. reality in my opnion is touching the focus ring 19 times, may cause some slight movement, or other things that degrade the image. but to each his own.
Sometimes people just get too caught up in the technical aspect

I agree. too much complexity. At most, 9 with this lens, 2 sets of 3 brackets at close distance, one set of 3 at far distance.

I guess you can do 19 to cover up for mistakes and what not, kinda like 1Dx shooters doing bunches of shots just to get that one, but in this case, doing a bunch of shots to get the right set of images. Maybe only 2 or 3 used in post.

My biggest issue with over complicating things is that dwindling light just disappears before you know it. Too busy with technical aspects that you miss a great scene while you were dialing in technical settings.

I know, i may do that 19 shots or even 199 shots if i am indoor shooting some fine arts or very detailed architecture under controlled lights, but outdoor if the light is changing fast i can't be sure i may get something like 15 shots or more just right.

I know about stacking focus principle even i didn't do much, but i tested them recently and also tested the tilt feature and honestly speaking, i will go with say 3-5 tilted shots or even less over say 15-30 shots for stack, perfectionist sometimes if overkill to me, same as wanting very very sharp results when you can have good enough sharp already.

Also i want to know, with ultra wide lenses, mostly you can get things largerly in focus with f8-f16 without doing stacking focus shots much, if that is true then why not getting say 1 shot for foreground and one for mid of the frame and one for background all at f8 or up to f11, this way you can have 3 shots with each have focus on different parts of the frames, i mean what is 19 shots from this UWA can gain more?

I feel if someone wanted to shoot at f5.6 because it is the peak sharpness, then f16-22 is useless even for doing very long exposure as we lose sharpness significantly, but from what i see it is not the case, i can agree shooting tenths or hundreds for stack focus if you use standard to long FLs, but i will not judge others works if they are satisfied doing thousands of shots for one frame to have top perfect shot they think, i have Hasselblad that kills all Canon/Sony in sharpness but i don't do stack focus too.

Just spent 12 days and 4,000 miles cruising around a few Western states to shoot. One of my first stops was the Alvord Desert in SE Oregon. Awesome spot.
