A panorama of the beautiful sky that accompanied me on my walk the other day.
I usually take one lens with me on these walks. That helps me to get to know the lens, and to force creative composition.
The sky was a spectacle I could not pass up. One lens, 31mm, which gives me a 52mm view as the 35mm film camera equivalent. What is called a “normal” view of the world, similar to what is seen by my eyes. So. in order to grab that view of the sky, I decided on a stitched panorama.
I put my camera in a vertical orientation, and started taking overlapping frames. I did reasonably well, for a hand-held series. I wish I would have gotten more of the upper right, but I didn’t.
I use a software program called Autopano Giga, by a German company, Kolor, which uses technology created at the University of Bath in England. This program took my 35mm frames and stitched them together for me in short order.
I left the overlapping edges intact because of that missing upper right portion. If I had cropped it, and I tried, it took away from the entire image. So, you get the whole stitched image. I’ll get better.
Love that sky.
