Row MM Stadium - (c) 2015 Gerard Blacklock

just bring your binoculars 🙂

Allianz Stadium, or whatever its gonna be renamed to tomorrow has some very nice curves and features, if you can keep it all together!

I have always wanted to try and get some shots within a stadium when its empty, particularly a symmetrical panorama. I learnt a few important lessons with this image and a few other panos I took, 1) technique has to be spot on in terms of camera rotation and position between shots 2) proper pano head would make life a crapload easier 3) Photoshop gets very confused when trying to straighten these kind of wide angle panorama’s 😉

This is a 3 shot (bracketed) pano using the Samyang 14mm f2.8, a real gem, damn sharp (even if you miss the focus like i did here) and then stitched and smashed over the head in photoshop to get the horizon kinda straight and the footy goalposts kinda vertical.

Taken as part of Stadium Stomp 2015 with O. Sydney

Techie love:

  1. Try the latest Photoshop or Lightroom for your panos. Adobe has really lifted their game in that regard. I've gone back and redone a whole lot of panos that previously failed or came out wonky and 9/10 of them came out flawlessly. 👍
