Messy… but cool…

Here is just one more photo… well really there are 19 more photos in this one photo…. from my night at the JB Blunk Residency that I have been posting about… the photos that were lost but not really lost.

Anyway, I wanted to try and show the amazing scope of the environment, but I wasn’t getting it with even my widest lenses. And I have never been able to afford a panoramic camera that I have wanted for years and years. So I decided to create a 180ยบ sequence in photoshop using the Photomerge tool… which I have only used once before. For this photo, I stood on the railing and took about 30 photos, which are pretty borring on their own.

And tonight I made this! It’s kind of messy… but really fun. I am going to clean it up and play with other merge options, but I thought it was useful to see how it looks before it is tucked in around the edges.

Just Like Fishing…

In my last post, I confessed that I “lost” some files. And just like fishing, those were the ones that got away… so I raved and raved about how great those photos were and I woefully mourned their loss.

Well, today I found them.

I think they were bigger and better swimming in my memory. But I did get the beautifully made bed photo that I wanted, so I feel a little better after-all.
