Today marks the halfway point of 365 photo journey over at 365Project.org. Boy I've learned a lot.
I've learned: long exposures, panoramas, landscapes, and seascapes. I've learned to love my primes, stand on 3 legs, and see with my 50mm. I can spot a killer dusk when it's still afternoon. I've gotten out and streched my legs. I've caught my present, and reflected back on my past.
All of those aspects are captured in this photo.
This is a panorama of the Songhees in Victoria, BC, shot from Fisherman's Wharf. If you look closely, you'll notice camera shake in the details. This was taken from a tripod using a 2 second shuttder delay, and fired with a remote... but the dock I was staning on was moving ever so slightly over the 1.0 to 1.3 seconds that each exposure lasted.
The 4 exposures were taken between 1.0-1.3 seconds, all with aperture priority f/13 and ISO 160, using my Nikon D600 and 50mm lens. I used my Manfrotto pistol grip tripod head, rather than my pano head, so I levelled the camera with the D600's built in horizon to get as level as possible.
All 3 shots were corrected in Lightroom 4, then output as 16 bit TIFFs and stitched together in Hugin using the Mercator projection.
Final round trip back into Lightroom to balance the sky's brightness across the whole range.
54.5 megapixels (14840 x 3675), 444 MB compressed TIFF, FOV 106 x 28 degrees.
Nikon D600, Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D lens, 1.0-1.3 second exposures at f/13, ISO 160. Stitched in Hugin, Mercator projection.
