Lake Mc_Cormack Panorama

When we were photographing the trees with strong shadows at Plainsboro Preserve for the previous post, I also shot a series of 7 vertical images of Lake McCormack @17mm for a wide panorama. When shooting at wide @ 17mm, I overlap my series of images more than my usual overlapping if using a longer lens.

Plainsboro Preserve Landscapes @ 12mm & 24mm

We went to Plainsboro Preserve to take a walk and to see what we could find to photograph. Looking outside before we left we saw the clouds were amazing. So I decided to travel light and only brought a 12-24mm lens on a Canon R, thinking I would concentrate on landscapes with the clouds. And if I saw something else interesting I also had my iPhone 11 Pro. The Plainsboro Preserve includes over 1,000 acres of undisturbed open space with nature trails and the 50-acre McCormack Lake. The New Jersey Audubon Society manages the preserve on behalf of Plainsboro and Middlesex County County, NJ.

Mc Cormack Lake Multi-Image iPhone Panoramas

On our recent walk at Plainsboro Preserve, we took a different trail that took us to the farthest viewing point of McCormack Lake. We had never been at this spot in the woods before. There were many trees in the way, but I liked the view looking through the trees seeing the distant shoreline with the trees & clouds across the Lake. I was using a Canon R with a 12-24mm lens, but for this post I am only using the images I shot with my iPhone 11. Most of these iPhone images are multi-image shots to get wider views or a little taller views to get more foreground & more of the clouds. The featured image is 4- iPhone 11 Pro images with the 1.5mm lens to get more width and more sky & foreground. On a Full Frame camera this would be approximately equivalent to a 13mm lens field of view.

4 Image Panorama, iPhone 11 Pro with 4.3mm lens (Full Frame Equivalent ~26mm)
Single Image iPhone 11 Pro, 1.5mm lens (13mm Full Frame Equivalent ~13mm)
2 Image Landscape 1.5mm lens with more overlapping of images for a little wider view (13mm Full Frame Equivalent ~13mm)
2 Image Landscape, less over lapping of images for a even wider view, 1.5mm lens (13mm Full Frame Equivalent ~13mm)

Plainsboro Preserve Lake

5 image Panorama of 50-acre McCormack Lake at Plainsboro Preserve. The Plainsboro Preserve is a collaboration with the Township of Plainsboro, the County of Middlesex,
and New Jersey Audubon.  Close to 1,000 acres of lands were preserved by the County of Middlesex and the Township of Plainsboro that supports a diversity of habitats and wildlife, with one of the largest lakes in the area. The featured image is a 5 image panorama, each section shot @ 14mm on a m43 Olympus Camera. Then assembled in Photoshop. When doing panoramas with a m43 Camera, I tend to overlap each image more because of the smaller format. It just seems to lineup better and give better “blending” of the individual frames. On full frame cameras I do not have to shoot as many sections to get a “Smooth” overlap.
