Was playing with the Canon utilities that came with my little S100 on the PowerBook (I hadn’t even bothered installing them since iPhoto was able to import the photos from the camera automatically), and in particular the PhotoStitch application that is included to help take advantage of the camera’s panoramic helper modes. As luck would have it, I had taken a few shots in that mode while up at the Golden Gate Bridge recently with some visiting friends. I didn’t have the tripod with me, and I was interrupted by a phone call mid-sequence, so the last of the three did not stitch in nicely. I think that the first two look good though.
While researching this process of stitching photos, I came across the website of a photographer who does this kind of thing all the time: check out the Max Lyons Digital Image Gallery for not just information about producing stitched images, but also for some fantastic photos. A few of my favourites are:
- Forth Rail Bridge
- Route 550 (it is the clouds that grabbed my attention here I think)
- Telluride Valley
- Yosemite Valley
- Continental Crossing
The list could go on and on… there are so many amazing photos on the site.
