Just Research...

Before any wedding I always make some photos prior to the big day, to test the situation. There's nothing worse than not being prepared for a wedding shoot. You often have little time to take the photos and it has to be right the first time. Changing lenses or changing the setting of your cam on the spot, just takes too much time.


At the William Bridge in Rotterdam, I made this test pano. The actual wedding photo includes the happy couple. I illuminated them by a strobe on the first curtain and then holding still for approximately 45 seconds. Perhaps I will upload this photo in the future...


Technical stuff

This pano consist of 6 no-handheld photos. Initial stitching was done with PS. I made several manual changes afterwards. I also fiddled a bit with the color balance. But, this being a research project, I kept post-production to a minimum.


I uploaded this shot as sort of a reply at the a wonderful crisp photo "Splendid Evening" of Digit@l Exposure II. Please take the time to look at that photo and perhaps leave a comment.
