The Qualia Of Mary II

Making a Panoramic Image .

Marys shell in Cleveleys , Blackpool .

1 . First Compose and rotate the camera handheld to find your best panorama spot .

2 . Next level the tripod by using the spirit bubble . Then use the virtual horizon on your camera if you have one . On the nikon D750 press the info button untill it appears .

3 . Set Auto white balance or set to daylight in each for consistency if you are unsure then you can alter in post process .

4 . I then use and set to either f22 or f 16 and focus to infinity .
5  . Loosen the panning on your tripod when you take each picture with 50 % overlap .
Tighten up on each shot  .

6 . I use 5 to 10 vertical portrait images for a panorama . For a good print 5 is best .

Photoshop

File> automate> merge> browse (insert files ) . Tick blend images together . You can tick vignette removal if you want , but you don’t have to . Tick geometric distortions correction and only use Content aware if you are certain as it cannot be completely relied upon .

Lightroom

  1. Stephen thanks on the detail of making a pano. The image is stunning. I particularly like the way you’ve got the intensity of the light on the left and it gradually moves to semi-darkness on the right.
