This morning I woke up at 5am to shoot at sunrise from Stanley Park.
It was quite cold this morning, but I grabbed my jacket, camera, tripod & mono pod and headed for the park.
This is the view of downtown from Stanley Park in Vancouver, the colours this morning were absolutely gorgeous. I was really lucky to get such beautiful light and hope I can do it at least once more again before I leave to go back home to London next week.
Info for shot:
– Canon 5D with my 50mm 1.8
– Shot at ISO 800, f/5.6 at 1/125
– 18 shots.
My good buddy Dr Rave showed me how to do this in London earlier this year and I love playing around with this trick in PS and with my camera! Thanks Ravi!
To photomerge do the following in Photoshop
Click on Tools – Photoshop – Photomerge, let PS do its stuff and then I clicked on Collage.
… And that’s it!
The file will be pretty huge at this stage, but I cropped it to get the best fit and then resized the image to fit my blog.
Important info on set up:
DrRave: Shoot the images vertically (i.e. portrait) to include more into your image.
Simon: When you’re shooting panos handheld, position your feet so they are pointing towards the last shot in the sequence rather than twisting around from the starting position. It makes it less of a strain towards the end and you stand a better chance of getting perfect shots.
Its my birthday today, so I’m off now to watch the Arsenal match (come on you Gunners!), shop around Vancouver and then grab some dinner and wine tonight!
Have a great day…
