Weekly Photo Projects, Week 27
A quick bit about the shooting and stitching of the shot. I have found that orienting the camera in portrait position typically gives me better results and more area to crop from without eating into the subject of the photo. The downside to the portrait orientation is that the lens or the camera doesn't line up with the axis of the tripod so it rotates around the axis giving it some issues when lining things up for the stitching of the photo. An L bracket mount for my camera and tripod would fix that, now if I could only find one.
I'm in search of a good piece of software that does panorama stitching, and doesn't require a math Ph.D to figure out. I try as hard as possible to stay away from Adobe Photoshop, and only use it (in Photoshop Elements form, which I got with my Wacom Capture) when Pixelmator won't hack it, or when doing panoramas as I generally get better results than with the much more complex Hugin. If you have a suggestion leave me a comment.
|Happy 4th of July!|
