There was an old thread on this but a lot of pics are missing. So lets start fresh. The stitching software has gotten a lot better in the last couple years and I'm sure I'm not the only one to get the pano-bug. So lets see them.

Friend, if I had to guess it looks like you had your camera set in auto and it was changing exposures slightly between shots as you panned the camera. Try using your camera in manual and set one exposure for the whole set of photos. I use Photoshop CS3 for most all of my panos. The photomerge works good enough for my needs. Also avoid using a polarizing filter when taking these kinds of photographs. The change in the sky as you pan isn't the same all the way across so you'll get unwanted effects in the sky and colors.

If you get real serious about it, read about panorama image making at the Really Right Stuff site. They have great tools and ideas for how to do it "Right." http://www.reallyrightstuff.com

Here are some good tips though.


1. Set camera to manual exposure.

2. Turn off the auto white balance. You want all the frames to be the same color.

3. Turn off the auto focus.

4. Take off any filters, like a polarizer.

5. Make sure your tripod is dead level. If you're not using one, do some practice pans and figure out where your horizon should be throughout the pan.

6. Don't shoot too wide or you'll get a lot of lens distortion that makes blending the images more complicated/ F-ed up. However, shoot wide enough to allow for some cropping at the end.

6. Take a reading for the middle of your panorama. Adjust the exposure up or down, until you have it fine tuned.

7. Shoot left to right, overlapping frames by a third. L-R is how the stitching software thinks.

8. Double check beginning and ending exposures. Sometimes they will be way different than the middle. You might want to adjust the exposure some.

9. Do it again just in case one frame is blurry.

10. Let Photoshop Photomerge do its magic. Sometimes it nails it. If you don't like what it did you can stitch manually with layer masks and it gets really time consuming but gives the best results.

hey there all.. .say, after getting to read some more of this... it seems some pics are done by peicing? for panarama?

i remember my first few trips to yosemite... i did that deal where you take your camera and try to take a full long pic of the whole view, etc, of (dont remember where i was doing this from) half dome and all the scenery to each side of it (the whole wide great view):

i then, developed and cut them out and glued them all together, oh my... and now a days, look at all this "photo works" etc... :)

also, i did get a cheap through-a-way camera once and it actually had a panamra view-lens to push and use...

i really like that... it seemed so much was wasted, on the paper-strip of the pic, though, as that was all black and unused, to make the long photo strip----and of course, it was not too big a pic, but i was so very happy to see the full-long-view...

say, thanksss for sharng, once again...

Nice shots all!

Jerry, thanks for the instructions. Having been through this by trial and error, you boiled it down to a digestable deal.

My son got photoshop elements one year and I loved their basic stitching software. Most of what I ended up stitching however was for real estate and done online.

My close friend David McKay (teacher at Sierra Nevada JC in Nevada City) just published a book on the South Yuba with several pano's that were all hand stitched some were made froma as many as 14 shots, stitching both verticle and horizontal just to get the details. Way too much work for this boy!

Anyway thanks again for sharing your amazing work.

Hell yeah. That's what we're talking about! Awesome. I love that shot of Matthes Crest especially. Great perspective. Keep them coming.

Hi DD. Are we going to see some of your handiwork? You made a great point there. I didn't mention that its a good idea to shoot all your frames as verticals to get more resolution. You really want to be on a tripod for that though, and set it up right. You can get crazy, shooting multiple rows of images and stitching them together, OR, you just do it with a big 6x17cm panorama camera. Those are amazing.

By far the best panorama stitcher that I've found is called hugin. It's open source, and you can get it from http://hugin.sourceforge.net

It not only allows you to set merge points, but to identify vertical and horizontal features, like horizons and building edges, to ensure that they come out properly.

Ok, a serious question: At what point (mm) does a wide-angle lens get to squirrelly for pano-shots? (the outer edge is typically more distorted than towards the center) It seems to me that in digital terms (as 35mm film lenses are different) that it’s around 35-40mm, no?

Jerry: Wow that stuff on the Really Right Stuff website is incredible (and pricey!). I love the idea of the pano clip that rotates on the optical center of the lens.

All of my pano stuff was just for selling homes. It’s essentially how we made virtual tours…so it’s really boring! But high the high-volume work in Real Estate taught me tons about making quick processing decisions in Photoshop and in turn training my assistant to see things and process as I saw it. I have yet to work with scenic panos, so this will be fun. Unfortunately, my version of Photoshop (7something) doesn’t include stitching, but I look forward to playing with some of the online stuff.

Karl…your Whitney and Iceberg lake shot is incredible. 15 shots??? Judging from the overall crop of the picture, shouldn’t it be an even #, like 2 rows of 7?

Euroford: You’re night shot improved quite a bit. I used to shoot a lot of night stuff. The cool thing about digital is that you can learn quickly compared to film as you can see the results asap. Two things I’ve learned about shooting at night in digital: 1. Always work in both manual focus, aperture and f/stop modes and if you want stars out of your bright lights use at least f/18. 2. Turn off the Auto ISO and work in a fine mode with longer exposures.

Three rows horizontal and 5 rows across. I had to deal with the transition of rock to water and then get depth of field for the closer ice.

I've shot lots at 28mm equiv. The secret is having lots of overlap so the edges aren't so critical anyway. Shooting a bit tighter would probably be better though.

thanks for the pointer on the f/stops for stars! i think i shot at like f/28 as i wanted craptons of DOF. obviously, that night was far too misty for any stars, but even over this monster of a city i think i could be able to get a couple. otherwise, i had your advise pretty well nailed!

actually, the 2nd pano was shot BEFORE the first one. most of the learning issues there were stiching software related.

Do really wide panos work better in more diffused light conditions? I assume the transitions would be less evident.

Mal, even with the evident transitions, that's one beautiful scene. Stellar light.

Here's a mediocre one, done manually a few years back, before I knew about stitching software.

Prez- I hit your site- very nice.

When you stitch are you starting with PhotoMerge in Ps? That's where I start, then start working on color correction from there.

If there is another technique I'd love to try it out.

Thanks for the write on the site! Much appreciated.

I use photomerge from cs3. I couldn't find the interactive stitch mode in CS4 unless I am missing it. I don't know why its not where it used to be!

Then I bring it into Lightroom usually where I find I like messing around with it more.

Although my friend John (coldclimb) uses Autopano Pro and loves it. I think you can download a free trial.

neebee - THanks for checking out the link!

Making pano shots is easier then it seems! Just take a bunch of pictures in a row however you want to stitch them together and take them to the proper program. When I take the pictures I like to include about a third or so what would have been in the previous picture into the next picture. This does cause its own difficulties but it helps me. Now there is a lot more of an art to it to get a "good" pano. But to start thats about all there is to it!

For PS CS4, the stitching appears to be done under Edit -> Auto-Align Layers and then going from there.

# Choose Edit > Auto-Align Layers, and choose an alignment option. For stitching together multiple images that share overlapping areas—for example, to create a panorama—use the Auto, Perspective, or Cylindrical options. To align scanned images with offset content, use the Reposition Only option.

Auto
Photoshop analyzes the source images and applies either a Perspective or Cylindrical layout, depending on which produces a better composite.

...

After auto-aligning, you can use Edit > Free Transform to fine tune the alignment or make tonal adjustments to even out exposure differences between layers, then combine the layers into one composite image.

For a video on aligning layers by content, see www.adobe.com/go/vid0014.

For a video on using Auto-Align and Auto-Blend to create a panorama and increase depth of field, see www.adobe.com/go/lrvid4120_ps.

Thanks guys.

Another question- I use a Nikon D90 and have a fixed 60mm, a fixed50mm an 80-200mm, (Nikkors) and an Aspherical 17-210mm (Sigma).

I have been using the 60mm for panoramas. Would the 80-200 be best id all the images were taken at 200mm?

What lens do you guys prefer? I don't use the wide angle lens because the edges are distorted and Ps CS3 doesn't like it.

Prezwoodz told me this thread was going on, so I couldn't resist dropping by. Awesome photos everyone! This is a great idea. Here's some of my stuff from this year in reverse chronological order:



Last week at Reflection Lake near Wasilla, Alaska:








Reed Creek in Hatcher Pass, Alaska, September 10th:




My wife Tracy rapping off the Dermatologist's Dream Wall, same day.




Hope climbing a 5.7 at Ravine Lake, Alaska:




Amos on the same route:




Tracy on the third pitch of an FA, over Lower Reed Lake, Alaska.




The Steese highway and a gazillion fireweeds leftover after the Central complex fire two years ago in one of many parts of Alaska on the edge of remote.




A small portion of the Crazy Mountain Complex fire near Circle, AK.




Annette climbs Physical Attraction in Archangel Valley, Alaska.




Sunset over the Crooked River at Smith Rock.




Fire department water supply training in June.




Melissa on The Slot 5.7 with Archangel Valley all around.




Knik Glacier near Palmer, Alaska - a favorite. It's 85 images and full-res there's an airplane flying by that's in two of the shots.




Joe nearing the top of Roadhouse Rock in Archangel Valley, Alaska.




Reed Valley, Alaska, before all the snow melts.




Greg waters down a hotspot in a dangerous snag in Homer, Alaska.

Okay, so here's 2008 in forward chronological order. I think this is when I caught the pano bug! :lol: This is all I've got though.



360 plus degrees from the summit of Castleton.




Kelsey on one leg atop Ancient Art.




An odd view of the St. Louis Arch, shortly before we got kicked out of the park. Evidently it's closed at night.




180 degrees of a Louisiana bayou outside New Orleans.




A lone remaining bald cypress in the Louisiana swamp.




Homero's in El Potrero Chico!




Kelsey's face is a small red speck rappelling from Supernova in El Potrero Chico.




Kelsey holds aloft a small Mexican flag as Tracy follows me up one of the spires in El Potrero Chico.




Kelsey and Tracy are specks in the distance at White Sands National Monument, New Mexico.




Sedona's dim lights are still enough to brighten the night sky.




It's a rainy day in Joshua Tree with visibility only a couple hundred feet.




The following morning is bright though!




One of the beautiful landscapes of Joshua Tree NP




Kelsey on T-Crack at Gibraltar Rock, Santa Barbara CA.




Redwoods tower over the highway in northern California.




This one is pretty sweet at full-res, 360 degrees of the redwoods with Kelsey wandering down a trail, too small to even make a pixel at this size.




I think that's most of all I've got, I didn't do much stitching before last year. Hope you all enjoy these!

As far as Liberia, I'm not sure if this makes sense, but you kind of need a reason to want to go. Here is why I went

When we were there we were eating so much Jalla Rice and potato greens I was feeling mighty bloated. So we went for runs every day and kept seeing these smallish dogs all over. When you're in a place like Liberia you really don't want to get bit by a dog so you really notice them. One day we decided to vary our route and run along the beach. First thing I notice is some GIANT dog crap that I almost stepped in. Then I see another and another and my friend and I start looking for the big dogs. Then we looked up the beach and saw it was completely full of big 'ol Man Sized Turds. Then we realized that the beach was full of fully-grown men squatting in the sand taking their morning constitutional. Not cool.

After our run I was getting ready to get in the shower and realized there was this funky smell in my room. Sure enough, there was Man Crap on my shoes and I had to go out and pound it off them in the dirt. Uncool.

But you need to know there is amazing surfing in Liberia. We went half an hour out of town to these beaches that were basically uninhabited. No one near the water and great waves with really warm water. had the place to ourselves. And we didn't even go to the best surfing beaches on the north end of town.

A friend of mine went back a week or two ago to assess our program and see how it was working. They found the teams in Sierra Leon had trained another 4 teams and there were plans to make the wheelchair program national. The Monrivia Rehab Center was also doing well and one of the staff who had excellent potential had gone to Kenya to get an equivalent of a PT degree so he could go back home and do even more.

Anyway, there is much more to tell if you were really interested. Unique place yet very familiar to the Georgia boy who grew up as the white kid on the basketball bus.

After watching that video of how the NatGeo tree shot was taken I started thinking how amazing a shot of one of the Yosemite stones would look photographed with a descending rig of the same sort.

The same thing would work on horizontal ground, a long, long panorama consisting of shots taken over a few hundred yards.

To take the round the world shot would require a lot of life jackets.

As to the person who has 'issues' with Jerry and his photography
in the holiday spirit I will just say he has no photographic taste and he must have skipped his meds.


So this is just an experiment. I made it tough by shooting into the sun with lots of deep shadows at the bottom.

Shot 10 frames with 3-4 exposures of each shot to cover dynamic range. Two rows of 5 each with a 50 mm (75 mm full frame equivalent)

Made 1 HDR with Photomatix Pro of each of the 10

Merged the 10 shots with Autopano Pro and PTGui. The AutoPano is very slick but it took an hour to render! PTGui took maybe 5 minutes - max.

Took the resulting PTGui 600 MB TIFF into Photoshop and did some minor doctoring with curves and saturation.

Voila!



I re-did the AutoPano using only 8bit TIFF's and saving as a JPG so it only took about 10 minutes with a 2GB DualCore with 4GB of RAM. The AutoPano is nicer to use than PTGui as you can do color correction with it.

Hey. You guys slipped a few in when I wasn't looking! Nice work.


Here's one from today. I went for a nice hike on Mt. St. Helena, thinking I was in a window between storms. Wrong. It started dumping on me, barely snowing, big floaty wet flakes. The brush was covered in slush and soon water was running through my underwear down into my boots. I wondered how hypothermic I might get but blocked that out, blasted the ipod, and ran down the mountain.

I was trying to get some work done today but instead find myself salivating all over the keyboard over this thread. "Panorama" has the ring of something special even extra real, but upon reflection, I feel these pics are more akin to what the brain and eyes actually take in when in the place(s). So, it's regular old pics which now seem "unreal."

I suppose the question is how can stitching happen without stitching, right from a single shot itself? A wide angle lens certainly does not do the trick, but one could imagine some kind of camera internal software going to work on a wide angle image to do the job, or is there such a thing already? As I say, I was trying to work instead of wondering what the heck.

In any case, nice work all!

So am I out of line to suggest people say how they are doing these?
Like how many frames and/or rows, vertical vs hor, which lens and software.
We could make this a 'teachable moment'!
Pate

Trad climber
May 8, 2010 - 01:16pm PT
Reilly- not at all out of line.

The majority of these are done with photo stitching software of one type or another. I know that Prez and I, and I'm assuming Jerry and most of the others are using the Photomerge tool in Adobe Photoshop. That's a pretty powerful tool. Jerry posted some links in here to some cool custom pano gear, mostly tripod related.

I take all of mine by hand, and use my camera set on manual so I can get an even set of exposures and reduce differences in the lighting between images, especially the sky. I use a pretty standard set of lenses, the only one in my bag I don't ever use is my wide angle fish eye or because it distorts the edges of the image.

Prez is really good at the vertical and overhead images. I haven't quite figured those out. For those I take my series of images and rotate them on their sides, then stitch them, then rotate the finished image back.

The panos in here that are very small looking are a lot of images together, the actual image in reality is like 10 feet long if printed at 100% size. The web site shrinks them down tiny, the pics of mine of the creek are like 9 images together. The bigger images on the web site are around 3/4/5 images together.

Jerry and Prez are the real professionals, probably some others, I'm just a devoted amateur, but that's my take on them.

Right on Mssr Potay! That's what I'm talkin' about!
I use CS4, PTGui, and AutoPano Pro though I am still not committed to the latter two although serious panoists seem to like them better than Photoshop. I've also done a few incorporating Photomatix HDR which can really 'juice things up'! It is a lot of work doing the HDR as you're dealing with 5 times as many frames (or more)!

Tradster: I was out on a precarious rock for about an hour trying to get that shot and it didn't work until it was really dark, and fortunately I had a period of several minutes where the waves were nice and big, so worked quick to get the shots. By a stroke of luck the lighthouse keeper turned on all the lights which really makes it work. I had a 2 stop soft edge grad ND on the sky, and shot it with my D3 and 24mm t/s lens. I dropped the grad filter in the ocean just after this. DAMN!

This is a really cool thread, with some neat photos! Nice work!

Here are a couple stitch attempts that I recently put together…



From Johnson Peak (left) to Evelyn Lake (right), Tuolumne high country, October 2009




360+ view from Mt. Conness to Mt. Conness, taken from the summit of Cathedral Peak, Tuolumne high country, October 2009. It’s tough to see details in the landscape at a width of 1024 pixels, but at full resolution, this image is almost 7.5 feet wide.


Anyone know what’s the best way to go about having a panorama printed at full size? Does Kinko’s do quality printing of stuff like this or is it better to go with a camera/photo store?

Probably best to use a photo service. Your images are really long but not tall. Those are like a 5-1 or 8-1 ratio. Presentation could be tricky. It might be a good idea to print on canvas and have them framed over stretcher bars so you don't have to deal with glass or frames. If you are near the valley you can use West Coast Imaging in Oakhurst. http://www.westcoastimaging.com/

Thanks, Jerry! A canvas print would probably be pretty cool, but that image isn’t worth anywhere close to $564!! (30x90) Kinko’s has done some inexpensive yet decent posters for me in the past but a real print might be the better way to go. I’m just looking for something that I can throw on the wall with thumb tacks that doesn’t look like junk. Thanks for the link – I’ll keep WCI in mind, and maybe for a standard gloss print. The local lab here in Reno says they will print only up to 60” wide and I haven’t been very happy with their 8x12 prints from 35mm color slides in the past. Please check your email.

a whole string of panos on a thread I made recently. I use a FREE stitch program called Hugin. email me for directions if you need tips. 1st tip is rotate the camera on a single axis for each pic, and overlap 50% when you take each pic.

Lake Issyk-Kul, Kyrgyzstan



First base camp, where we came across the Slovenians who climbed the peak we'd gone there to climb as we were hauling to the new base camp. Pretty annoying but it sounded like death on a stick anyway. Jerry Dodrill should be familiar with it, Grand Poohbah or Pik Byeliy



Aytali valley, the background is the land the Chinese annexed some time in 2005, probably for the oil
