More photos in one

I decided to use this challenge to learn to do something that I have wanted to do for a long time: panoramas. This is two photos stiched together with Arcsoft Panorama software. It was so easy to do, I can't believe I didn't try it sooner!


22 mm, F 16, 1/60 sec, ISO 200

For choose your challenge, I did a challenge that I missed earlier: vintage. This is my friend's antique dresser that has been repainted red. I love the colors and the drawer pulls. I can't decide if this photo would be better with more of the pulls in focus or not.

50 mm, F 4.8, 1/50 sec, ISO 200

CC please.

Beautiful pictures, I love both of them very much. I have never tried the photo stitching, I have the program but have never experimented with it, so you have inspired me to try.

Ooooh, pretty! I have yet to try stitching a panoramic... you are one brave woman! I'll have to try it sometime. Gulp. ;)

Katy said...

WOW!!!! BOTH pictures are amazing, I'm LOVING the panoramic shot-- is that stitching program expensive? It looks difficult! I LOVE the vintage too, great angle and lighting... and what an awesome dresser!

The stitching program came free with my camera bundle. It is a Nikon program. I understand, though, that you can do the same thing in photoshop.

It was super easy too. I just made sure to take the pictures with the same settings at the same level and to overlap the images by about 1/3. Then I uploaded them to the program, selected them, and hit a button to process them. The computer did most of the work. I just had to crop off the curved edges. Super easy!

I'm not sure what the process is in photoshop, though.
