Mt. Rainier Panoramic

Hi Friends,

The image below is an 8 photo panoramic I shot of Mt. Rainier taken yesterday. WAIT! You can’t see Rainier? Well neither could we (it should be in the upper right corner of this photo). But if you look closely you may see Mt. Adams off in the distance.

We got a real late start in the day and were hoping to get some sunset shots from Crystal Mountain, but it didn’t look like the clouds were going to break so we made the trek over to Sunrise in the hopes that getting closer might yield a shot or two. Well, it wasn’t to be. Perhaps next time (I will post a few others later on).

Blessings until next time,

Chris.

Shot of the Day 3/01/2014

Lynette and I had to take a quick trip to Seattle to day to take care of some business. While we were up there, I thought that I might take a couple of quick shots of the Seattle skyline. I was hoping for something more dynamic in terms of sky or sunshine or stormy skies, but I think that I came away with something decent despite the flat, gray clouds. For the record, I hate flat, gray skies.

Anyway, I thought that we take some trips around town to get a few other shots, but were rained out. Oh well, just leaves something for another time.

The longer, more narrow picture here is a 6 photograph panoramic shot.  Both are available as prints and/or canvas. Click on the thumbnail to enlarge the image.

Blessings,

Chris.

Shot of the Day 8/25/13

Good morning Seattle!

Big day today! Right, soccer fans?! Today is a HUGE Cascadia Day match between the Seattle Sounders and the Portland Timbers. 67,000 rabid soccer at Centurylink Field to watch what will hopefully be a beat down of the Timbers by the Sounders.

So, what I wanted to do would be take a photograph of that game and post it here. BUT the NFL, yes NFL, in conjunction with the MLS no longer allows anything in the stadiums. So what that means is basically no more photographs with my D800 (iPhone only and we know how much that sucks). If I am ever fortunate enough to be allowed on the sidelines then I will get different photographs, but until then I am left with a few select photographs taken before the policy change. One of those being the one in this post.

This image was taken earlier this year right before a match with the other Cascadia opponent: the Vancouver Whitecaps.

So what makes this photograph special? Well, nothing in particular except that it is a panoramic photograph. That is, one images made up of several photographs. In this case, it is made up of 6 images. So why do it? Well, first of all, there will be much more detail in the complete image than what could ever be in one image of the same frame. Second, it allows a much wider field-of-view than a standard lens could (yes, I know that you can get an ultra wide angle lens). And lastly, its just plain cool to work in Photoshop.  Yes, the 6 images I took needed some Photoshop work to complete the panoramic.

So, how was this shot. First, manually set the correct exposure. Then, start taking the photographs, overlapping about 1/3 of each image. Simple, right ? Ok, perhaps not that easy, but I’ll save more details instructions for a separate blog post. In the mean time, enjoy the photograph.

Blessings, and enjoy the game!

Chris

BTW-you need to click on the thumbnail to view it. And unfortunately, you won’t be able to see the full splendor and the detail of the image due to size restrictions of the blog.
