It's a Small World Pano

Small World Pano

This is a pretty easy ride to shoot but then I end up looking at the photos and just think they’re not worth the effort to post. Well I saw an opportunity with this shot to do something maybe a little bit different that maybe hasn’t been done quite this way before.

I was shooting with the Nikon 14-24 2.8 however even with that lens it’s still not wide enough to get an entire view of this room. Consequently I had shot a few overlapping shots though not on purpose or with any real intention to combine them later. Another thing I did was hold up my arms to get a higher up view point, almost as though you’re standing as opposed to a lower sitting down angle. Fortunately I had 2 very good overlapping shots I was then able to combine as a pano to get a really nice wide view of almost the entire room. Additionally the new border warp feature in Photoshop and Lightroom allowed me to stretch the rather oddly shaped combined pano to a perfect rectangle without needing to crop. This feature is really really incredible and I suggest checking it out if you have any interest at all in panos.
