Lens-Artists Photo Challange 165: “go wide”

I love taking panoramic photos. When looking at the statistics, you can see, the wide-angel lenses are used very often. Unfortunately, the main parts become quite small, when using such a lens. So, I often take a couple of images with a longer focal length lens and stitch them together in post-processing to preserve the details.

4 * 90mm (full-frame)


13 * 50mm (full-frame)


12 * 24mm (full-frame, vertical)


23 * 85mm (full-frame, vertical)

When printing this last image in 30cm (1ft) height, it would be 200cm (7ft) wide, to give you an idea of the size and the view angle.

For this technic, you need overlapping images. Approximately 1/3 of each image should overlap with 1/3 to each neighboring image to have enough room to stitch the image properly. I often turn the camera to take the images vertically and almost always I mount it on my tripod.

Thanks, Patti, for this wonderful theme for this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

Take care!
