Capturing a scene the old way

This guy was braving the elements and the fading daylight yersterday.



When I got close, I so wanted his picture to be a painting of a cat. Does that make me weird?

:-)

Good to see he is using old style 'digital' measurement technology.

Thanks.

I am a bit addicted to pano stitching, and unfortunately it gets out of hand. You end up with mega sized files and beautifully detailed images that you can never ever print or display because they are stupidly wide. I once shot a 180 degree pano from a hill top that would come out at 22 feet wide but only 1 foot high.

That would be a sod to frame :-)

I did a compo of about 15 shots from film, I think it came out at 45 inches by 6. Even with that it was a beast working out how to display it with anything more sophisticated than Blu-Tak.

Use something like Pano2VR to create images that you can zoom into and out and pan from side to side.

Rumour has it that Afinity have a product that does this.

Re: Capturing a scene the old way

You could always use it as a border to go round a room Pete rather than frame it.
