Manual 365/226.5 Respect Where Respect Is Due…

I’ve gone back through todays’ shots and remembered I tried one of my favourites with a twist, my normal 2x2x2x1x1x1 panorama turned into 3×3 stacked. Lightroom wouldn’t merge them in Perspective so had to go cylindrical first and then edit to panorama in Photoshop and I’ve now discovered Boundry Wrap! Great tool! And a note to self, when you’re using the tripod remember to turn Stabilisation back on when you grab the camera (The reason there’s not that much detail in the castle etc.)

But, anyway, tonight’s bonus

Manual 365/217 I’ve Developed Bad Habits…

Scuttling off into the distance at the first sign of a decent golden hour is one…


Handheld Panoramas is another….DSC_7871-Pano-EditBut hell, when both shots are less than 10 minutes apart and a couple miles from home, it’s got to be done…

1st is one on one @ 42mm, f/8.0,1/250 sec stacked and cropped looking across the Deverills’ from the A303 at the top of Charnage Hill.

2nd is one on one stacked @ 105mm, f/11, 1/125 sec and then 3x side by side (edited in Photoshop, Lightroom can’t handle the size, it’s a 871mb file in RAW export from Photoshop FFS!) Of my home town, Mere in Wiltshire.

I do have plans to pull away slightly from the landscape, occasionally. But I’m not going to waste the time of year!

And one day I’ll print off full size, that’s going to be interesting! Until then…

Manual 365/204 That Was The Day That Was…

And we’ll never get it back but bear this in mind, we are just silicon age hunter gatherers with better tools and a bit of cash!DSC_6794-PanoEvery one who’s ever lived managed to get us to where we are now. they didn’t know the risks but we do and I think we owe it to them not to fuck it up….

Manual 365/176 It’s Soooo Big!

Right, techy blog tonight…DSC_4152-PanoAnother landscape shot I know and the power lines were intentional.

The shot’s composed of 6 individual pictures which were merged into 3 up/down panoramas which in turn was combined into 1 side to side panorama. It crashed Lightroom (and the PC) so, after restarting I had to compose the final panorama in Photoshop and then edit back in Lightroom. The file is a tad on the large side! ;o)

Peace Peeps!
