As I was photographing these Brant Ducks, I also shot a series of the flying birds for a panorama, to see how it might work out. I was surprised it pretty much just worked out fine with no retouching of overlapping Brants. I was using a m43 camera with a Panasonic 14-140mm lens @48mm. I started on the left and just shot a quick series going to the right. I always shoot the pano of flying birds in the direction they are going. Seems to work better that way. The files adjusted in Adobe Camera Raw and the panorama assembled & blended in Photoshop for the final image.
Well done, I love it, Reed! The dramatic sky has gorgeous colors! 🙂
Thanks Donna! For some reason I like doing panoramas! The first, it is fun and sort of a challenge. The other is I could use a wide angle lens, but then the subjects are tiny and I get to much area on the top and bottom that I would crop off. Another is I get much more detail in the subjects I want. Also, sometimes, I print rather large, so more detail is a plus.
That’s a terrific image!
Thanks! They are fun to do! Most of the time they turn out!
