I really like panorama photos and have done them quite a bit already so for this assignment I wanted to try something different. I thought I would be cool to get a macro panorama because I haven’t really seen many of them. I also wanted to try a polar panorama to see if I could do it. Here are a few of what I was able to come up with:
In order to create the snowy river and leaf panorama I followed the instructions found on ilearn. In camera raw I made the sky a little bluer and also added a little light to the riverbank on the snowy river photo. I followed some instructions I found on the Internet in order to make the polar panorama of the amphitheater on campus. The biggest problem I had with this photo was I left my camera’s white balance on auto so it wasn’t the same it all the photos. I had to go in after and do some editing to make it look a little better. I think it turned out pretty good for my first attempt. The photo of the ladybug was a little harder to produce. I started out taking pictures of the ladybug until I got one that I though would work in a panorama. Once I got it I then took multiple shots for the panorama. They didn’t turn out perfect because I didn’t use a tripod. Photoshop wouldn’t put the photos together using photomerge so I had to do it free hand. I started out with a large canvas and started arranging the photos until it looked right. I then used layer masks and painted away what I didn’t want visible. Once the leaf looked right I put the ladybug on.
