Brigantine Division 40 Image Panorama

I am still going through images from our trip to the Brigantine Division of Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge near Oceanville NJ. Most of the wildlife was way off in the distance so I did a lot of multi-image panoramas of the landscapes & large flocks of birds in the Refuge as we were traveling around the Refuge on the Wildlife Drive. It was a fun photo day and I have a lot of images to go through and to assemble my images into the final panoramas. The Featured Panorama here is a 40 image handheld panorama taken with a Canon R with a 150-600mm lens @ 150mm at f/16. Final size of the Panorama is 126″ x 12.75″ high @300 ppi. When I am shooting multi-image handheld panoramas I tend to overlap the images a lot. If I do not need all I shot for the image, that is ok. But from experience it is better to have too many images than not enough. Also the panos seem to blend together better than spacing farther apart. It takes some practice but Photoshop does a Great job aligning & blending the images for the final Panorama.

      • Do you make them in camera or do you stitch multiple images together? I do both with my Fuji but the in-camera panos are quite narrow. Fun to do, for sure.

      • Hi! I prefer to make my panoramas by loading the series into one layered Photoshop file and then let Photoshop align & blend them together. I use a variety of cameras (Canon, Olympus, Panasonic, iPhone 11 Pro & others) so when doing panos I found Photoshop works best for me. Especially when using multi-images with the iPhone. Instead of the standard “Auto” blending feature, I use the “Cylindrical Blending” for the iPhone images in Photoshop. I have a whole series of multi-image iPhone images coming up in some posts soon to show the multi-image & multi-row images all in one file.

    • Thanks so much Greta! They are fun to do! Plus after you do a few you learn how many images you need and the amount of overlapping you need to get better results!
