Lake Woodruff NWR Multi-Image iPhone Panoramas

Many times when we are out walking in Wildlife Refuges I carry a main camera with a 400mm lens or a 150-600mm zoom lens and a m43 camera with wide angle 14-140mm lens. I also have in my photo vest a few Teleconverters just in case I see something interesting farther out for the full frame camera. But as I am getting older I am using my iP11 Pro more for the Wider or Multi-Image Landscape Panorama shots. The Featured Image is made with the iP11 Pro using the 1.5mm lens (Full Frame Camera Equivalent ~13mm). I shot 14 images, shooting 3 rows of 4 images and then 2 images in the center just as a precaution to make sure the images line up successfully. When using the iP11’s 1.5mm lens I overlap the images even more than if I was using the 4.3mm or 6mm lens. Photoshop does a good job lining up and blending the multi-rowed images from the iPhone..

Tree Panorama From Davidsons Mill Pond Park

We were taking a walk through the woods at Davidsons Mill Pond Park to get some exercise & fresh air. I was just using my Phone 11 Pro looking for interesting landscapes on the trails going though the woods. This image was near the very end of the trail through the woods. I was using my iP11 Pro with the widest lens 1.5mm (Full Frame Camera Equivalent ~ 13mm). I took 5 horizontal images in a series going from somewhat straight on to looking up, then the final image getting the top of the trees. I loaded those images layered in one Photoshop file and blended them for my flattened image file. I then adjusted my final blended image to get rid of most of the “distortion” because of the extreme wide angle of the 1.5mm iPhone 11 lens. This corrected a lot of the “bowing of the trees reaching for the sky”. It actually came out better then I thought it would.

Audubon Plainsboro Preserve “Walking” Panorama

We went for a walk at the Audubon Plainsboro Preserve to get in a nice walk. As we were walking down one of the long straight paths across from Lake McCormack I thought I would do a panorama of the woods. With the sun’s position it was casting long interesting shadows in the foreground. Usually I shoot a series of images from the left to the right, but shooting from a somewhat center position of the image I want to capture. Here I was near the start of the panorama I wanted to capture. I was using my iP 11 Pro with the 4.3mm lens (Full Frame FOV ~ 26mm). So I decided to shoot a series of images as I was walking down the path. This way I would not get as much of the “distortion” of the very small iPhone lens. If I was positioned about in the center of the image I wanted to capture I would get a very smaller distant distorted “view”on each end of the pano because of the iPhone’s small lenses. So it would look distorted with much smaller ends. So I went to where I wanted to start my panorama and a took an image. Then counted fifteen or so steps and took anther image. I did this down the entire length of the view I wanted to capture. In the end I had 16 images for my main panorama which is my featured image. The total length is 110 inches x 10 inches @ 300ppi. All images aligned & assembled in Photoshop.

BRIGANTINE IPHONE MULTI-IMAGE PANORAMAS

On our recent trip to the Brigantine Division of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Oceanville, NJ, I was traveling light. Mainly using a Tamron 150-600mm lens on a 1D mkIV, a 12-24mm zoom on a Canon R and my iPhone 11 Pro for multi-image landscapes & multi-image panoramas. The Canon R with the 12-24mm never made it out of the camera bag. I was having more fun shooting multi-image Panoramas on my iPhone 11 Pro. The featured image is 13 images shot in multiple images per row & then multiple rows with the iPhone 11 Pro & the 1.5mm lens.

Raindrops On Fall Leaves

We went for a walk in our community and wanted to photograph some of the colorful leaves that have finally turned colorful. The images here are multi-image panorama images shot with my iPhone 11 Pro with the 6mm lens. Equivalent Full frame camera focal length would be approximately 52mm. The featured image was 3 vertical images blended in Photoshop for the final image. I also usually use the 16×9 image format on my iPhone which gives me a wider or taller image to work with.

Rain Drops After The Storm

I am still testing the iPhone 11 Pro for a variety of photo subjects. These are to see how it does for closeup details. Not quite a macro camera, but very close. Plus because of the iPhone 11’s small lenses you get quite a bit of depth of field for these closeup subjects.

For these images I was using the 6mm lens (Full Frame equivalent would is 52mm)
