I like to use a fixed 28mm rectilinear lense. Also I just discovered the definition of a "prime" lens. To me, a "prime" is always a main lense used in a set-up and apparently some stinkyhole's changed it when I wasn't watching. I don't mingle enough.



Here's a photo, and I'm siding with my buddy Soul Penis, HDR yo.

Also, a great big gently caress you to sky. I don't even like sky in my photos. I think I might actually just ban sky. No more sky. I'm done with it.

I never like the sky in HDR

HELP ME

Sorry if I'm "necro-ing" this, but I'd really love a good (large) night cityscape type panorama. There's been a couple posted but they're only preview size.

Anyone taken any more good panoramas in general? I'm looking to print out one (or maybe more if they turn out well).

Woo. Man, this is a lot of photos, and it's kinda killed me for a bit, especially because I can't process it without a Cray. Or whatever the supercomputer of 2009 is yet. Have we hit Quantum?

Anyway, I've been playing with my Hasselblad lately, and I'm contemplating maybe a panorama with that. A panorama made up of like, 5 or 6 seriously huge negatives. I've got like, five or six rolls of Fuji Reala 100, and they'll make for some seriously wicked long exposures. Find a friend to let me scan them, pow, huge panorama on film, which all the arty people jerk off over, and then I'll put it into one of those million art exhibitions that are reserved for artists who use real equipment.

My first panorama, I'm pleased with how it turned out. Initially there were more photos but autostitch seems to have problems with >360deg of coverage, it created a wierd figure of 8 thing.

I've really been wondering, how do you take that many pictures and ensure that every single spot is covered?

Decide where to start: Okay! Top left! Take a photo! Now, look in the camera, at the right side of the image until you've picked up a few details, got it? Okay, move the camera right until those details are on the left side of the soon to be taken photo. Take a photo! Keep doing this until you get to the end of the row, now, take notice what's at the bottom of the photo. Got it? Good! Move the camera down until whatever you saw at the bottom is on the top. Good? Keep going, back and forth, back and forth until you get to the bottom. Be meticulous, if you're on a digital, refer back to the last photo and get it right. If at the end, you think "did I miss an area?", you probably did and boy, you are going to be sooooo sad when you get home.

That's it, really. Um. To be honest, I'm unhappy with this image. I'm going to go back and take it again with a x2 on my 500mm reflex lens, so it'll be 1000mm F/16. But I think the photo will be that much better for it.



I've broken my remote shutter release for my Nikon D700, so while I've got like five on order, I'm playing with my Hasselblad. All images are, in fact, not blurry. They are so loving crisp you can cut yourself if you use a magnifying glass. They became a little blurry when I had to photograph them laying on my computer screen.



I'm pretty happy at how well my Hasselblad works in regards to this, but I'm not happy about these panoramas. Honestly, I probably should stick to night time photography. Woo. Ten minute exposures at F/32.

I'm about to lose my pro status on Flickr. So one last photo before I go.

This is a small world or little planet panorama taken from underneath a bridge. I've decided pretty much to forget about small world panoramics. gently caress 'em. I can't take the nadir so they get all screwy and because I'm on a tower or under a bridge, you don't get that sweet small world ideal.



And that's it. Back to mercator for me. And probably I'll stop killing this thread. I wish more people liked panoramas.

It looks like you've taken it 360, but not 180. You need to photograph what they call the "nadir". Which means move the tripod and photograph the ground. I suspect, anyway. I can't see because that image is pretty small. But also, what program did you use to make that?

EDIT: My computer has been processing a panorama for 32 hours.

I tried photographing the ground directly below me, but it doesn't work in that picture at all because my lens isn't wide enough to get the ground NEAR me. (28mm) That picture was about....230 or something, the edges just happened to line up well enough. I just used Photomerge in Photoshop.

Represent!

Some of the really wide ones are really wide - at 300dpi they are 1'x6' or so. They look pretty awesome full size, I'd love to get a few of them printed and framed.

My first panorama:
Kodiak, Alaska

Took it and tried to stitch the pictures by hand using paint.net - what a disaster. But then I found autostitch, and all was well. It inspired me to take a bunch on a trip I took recently:

Tervete, Latvia


Copenhagen, Denmark


Florence, Italy


Edinburgh, Scotland








Paris, France



(this one is cool because those are the roads that lead away from the arch de triumph - they really form a spoke, but are straighted thanks the the magic of perspective and me walking around whilst taking the photos)

Rome (and Vatican City), Italy

I used to use autostitch. Be careful when your taking panos, some of yours look like you could have had it on an auto mode. Doing panoramic in auto modes will result in dark patches. I do like your stuff though, keep it up. If you want more control, give photoshops panoramic tool a try. Its a little more work but you get a lot more control over your result.

I didnt realize how few of my panoramics I had posted. Heres a few, mostly fairly new but a few old ones.
