On the Edge

of two worlds

I am going thru a bit of a pano phase at the moment, I really like the challenge of being able to slice a piece of scenery to show something different and to be able to capture additional elements that just can't be achieved in a single 6×4 frame.

As a true testament to the ease of pano taking, i shot a whole bunch of images (just about all panos) from this area and I reckon I was happy with just about every frame – thats pretty rare for me btw 😉

So the next time you out punching some light with that digital fang-dangle thing they call a camera or smart phone, consider the pano option and watch the world just open up to you 🙂

Happy freakin' hump day too.

View large or go home 😉

The image is made from 5 horizontal landscape images stitched together in PS, the kicker here is that simply by adjusting the exposure on each frame I could capture that sweet dark area under the foliage and also the relatively bright falls, having a cloudy day certainly helped too.

D750 coupled with Nikkor 24-70mm f2.8 @ 32mm Aperture: f18 and Shutter Speed: varied from 5s to 30 seconds

  1. Love the detail and perfect exposure .. beautiful ! Do you use an L bracket on the tripod for these Panos ? You have inspired me to have a crack at these. Cheers !

  2. Thanks +Graeme Andrew
    I was recently given a old model manfrotto pano/vr kit this basically has some rails and also a beefy L bracket, which is what I use for these. There are two big advantages that a pano head give you 1) the ability to easily stitch panos in situations with lots of close and faraway subjects 2) makes all other panos just a bit easier since you can simply whack it on and just rotate it around.
    The big disadavantage – well for mine anyway.. its f'ing heavy and bulky … still carried it in and out of the Valley of the waters tho!
    hope that helps a bit 🙂

  3. +Gerard Blacklock​ not for VR though I could turn them into VR easily enough. It was a job for a caravan park, a tour for Google Maps – they don't have a VR option on there at the moment. Check out Moss Vale Village Caravan Park on Google Maps. 😉
