Excellent work. Do you have any tips you discovered while shooting and
which you wish you had known beforehand? Thanks for sharing the photos.
YES. . . If you go to someplace like this go at the end of the day when the kids are leaving
When trying a pano, and you want to do it in more then 3 shots, I found it best to "side step" about three feet every 2nd shot.
this will give it a flat look. If you look at the right side of the T-Rex you will see that the shot starts to slope.
I was only in one place and turned my body till I got him.
In This post
there is a photo of myself. This is how I was shooting.
I would have my elbow proped on my chest with the camera prest to my face and I NEVER took it down to move for the next frame.
I wanted to keep the same level for all shots.
I did have a mono pod with me, but it was more of a hinder then a helper.(because kids would run in front of me and hit it
A tripod would be good too, but you have to make sure it is right on level all the way around.
Once I found the spot I likeed in the view finder the camera stayed there and I moved.
The lighting there was very bad so I had to use a high ISO of 1600.
Even at 1600 the shots were still anywhere from 1/20 to 1/8 and it was always changing.
I have three other pano's that I was doing the did not work because the computer would match up the lighting and I would end up wit a "stair steep" look.
A flash would help this, but not when there is lots of people.
Hope this helps
PS. if you look in the background of #2 you will see that the T-rex has three sets of legs
