Hey Nick nice photo. Thanks. Keep sending those sony f828 photos in, i love to see what i could do with mine if i work at it some more.

A question for you: i checked out your website, thereare some really good photos there by the way and one in particular had me wondering how you got the picture so wide. Its the one under events (with the umbrellas in at a show/event).



Thanks.

Hello Peter08,

Glad you liked my pics and visited my site.

The panorama you asked about was taken from the middle of the show floor which was not easy to locate, it is such a big floor.

The image is 14 ( yes, fourteen) 8MP Sony-f828 JPEG images stiched together. Each image was overlapped abpout 1/3 on each edge.

I shot Aperture priority at f4, ISO 400, with manual flash, F32X,at full 1/1 power, handheld.

I shot as far over my head with my F828's twist body (without whch I would not have the image). I turned my camera and body as one unit from left to right about an imaginary center line through the camera and down to my feet.

I wanted to use f5.6 to limit some PF but the times were too slow. Using f4 the time of the various images (depending on ambient light on the floor) ranged from 1/13 sec to 1/30 sec.

Then I stiched 3 images at a time, then the resulting images together.

Once you are finished shooting you can review your images on the lcd and by turning your wheel fast enough you get a sense of the entire panorama. If you don't like it try it again.

It is alot of fun.

To post it on my site I downsized the image to 3,500 pixels wide and save as a JPEG at level 6 to 8 (I forgot which one):

Happy and Healthy New Year, Nicholas
