Circling through the photoblogs I follow, panoramic photography has been a recent subject and brought to my attention how little I’ve worked with the technique. I usually account for one panoramic when I’m out taking photos, but rarely ever stitch them together. Pictured above is a pano I took of the Ellerbe Road School about two weeks ago.
As for processing, I first worked with Hugin but wasn’t satisfied with the results. This was a 9 image handheld stitch and I don’t think the Hugin software liked the overlapping I did. I gave photomerge in CS5.5 Photoshop and liked the turnout better. Once I stitched it together, I did a bleach bypass in Color Efex, and then a NDF emulation to darken the approaching storm.
