Fall Walk In The Woods

We took a walk through the woods at a local park just to get some fresh air. I only had my iPhone 11 Pro with me since I was not thinking anything would be interesting to photograph. The sun was low and most of the leaves were off the trees, but the shadows of the trees were amazing. The iPhone did a nice job photographing in a variety of lighting conditions. After getting use to the new iPhone for a while now, I tend not to use the pano mode as much,  preferring to shoot multiple images to assemble my own wider or panorama views. Even with the 1.5mm lens selected (Full Frame Equivalent 13mm), I want more width without more height. On this walk I had enabled the phone to shoot HEIC Raw files instead of jpeg files. This way I supposedly had true Raw Data to work with in Adobe Bridge before opening in Photoshop instead of enabling Adobe Camera Raw to open jpegs as Raw files with settings. Also for certain scenes I like using the 16:9 capture mode setting for longer scenes without using the 4:3 usual capture. The 16:9 does not work with the 1.5mm lens.

  1. Not 100% sure, but fairly sure that you don’t want to touch that vine. If it’s poison ivy even leafless it can attack. I notice in the two similar vertical formats the tree tops appear to have artifacts around the upper twigs. Is that typical of the files or from processing?

  2. I especially like the wide shots, Reed, that emphasize the shadows. Your techniques inspired me in Paris to play around with Photomerge in Photoshop to create panoramas and I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was and how well it worked.

    • Thanks Mike! Yes, panos are quite easy to do with Adobe Bridge & Photoshop! It sometimes gets harder with extreme wide angle lenses with a large amount of images. Sometimes gets distorted on the ends. Which can be manually adjusted then.
