40 Image Brigantine Wildlife Drive Landscape

I am still going through images I shot on our visit to the Brigantine Division of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge near Oceanville, NJ. The Featured Image is a small Center Section of a handheld series of a 40 image panorama for one of the panos I shot from the Wildlife Drive. The full landscape is below. When doing handheld large panoramas I try to shoot the series as quickly as possible because clouds, grasses and birds in the image may be moving so when blending the pano images it is easier to blend the scene. I have found that Photoshop does a very good job on automatically assembling my multi-image panoramas, even when they are very Long or even Multi-row, Multi-image panos. you just have to get used to setting them up. On this trip I was using a variety of cameras depending on what I was photographing. These are taken with a Canon R camera with a 150-600mm zoom @150mm @f/16.

    • Thanks! Panoramas are fun to do and Photoshop does a Great job on blending them! It might take a few tries because of different options in Photoshop but after a few tries you should get good results. I also like doing multi-image panos on my iP11 Pro instead of the panorama setting on the phone which usually looks distorted in the middle of the image. On my Canon & m43 cameras I use the auto assembling setting. On my iPhone I use the Cylindrical setting. Then fine tune in Photoshop with the “Warp” feature.

      • Thanks so much! I had a Commercial Photo Studio for 50 years so I had a lot Practice on a Wide variety of subjects! So now being retired I enjoy photographing wildlife & landscapes which are more fun to photograph!

  1. The larger area around this refuge , Great Bay, the Mullica and its estuary, are an amazing places. Are you from the area? If not, what made you get there?

    • Hi! I live in NJ and it is one of the closest National Wildlife Refuges for me to go to photograph. I was also writing an ebook on the Refuge.

      • Hi – Have you completed the book or are you still working on it? I plan to be there Friday. I live in NYC now but I grew up in Atlantic County and I return there a few times a year. This visit will be first step in understanding the site, the full site of the refuge in Atlantic and Ocean County, the Mullica River and Great Bay. I would love to read your book and see more of your photos you publish those things.

      • Hi again! It is sort of done. I went on to other projects. If you send me your email I will forward you a pdf ebook. It is almost in final form.

      • Thank you for the pdfs. I replied to your AOL address and I am not sure if you have seen that message. I loved the photos. Do you sell prints? i am planning a move and would love to include those kinds of images in the new space.
