Make photos bigger...

posted on 19th of june, 2009

...namely if you have no 20Mp in your cam, let's go for panoramic!

My first panoramic photo series has been made on a boat in a middle of lake. You can imagine it, there was no program for stitching those pieces! :D

Later on, I found myself in office-window, taking shots from a purple sunset with my compact Casio cam. That was the point when I realized that a panorama photo is not only beautiful, but really useful, if you have a smaller cam than you need. It's still only 5,7 MP, but this 5,7MP is more 'useable' than original pieces individually (made of 3 vertical shots).

Through months and hundreds of shots I really can tell you, that I love taking panorama photos! You'd better to use tripod (or monopod) for tight aparture (-> for more details on photo), but you can test without it, of course (first case is more stock-able :)).

Unfortunately I've had no chance to use my 10MP cam for this purpose yet, but I'm going to Transsylvania next month, so I hope I can show you some beautiful town and landscapes - in a really-really high resolution!

Ooops, and a really important thing, the program for stitching; I use Autostitch for this, and I'm really happy with it - easy to use, fast (you can limit the memory size for program) and precise. Others use PhotoShop, PTGui, Panavue, or a free program - you can find the perfect one for yourself easily.

Have a beautiful weekend, everyone!

Very nice panoramas! I have to start shooting more panoramas again.

I love panoramas, you can fit in so much detail of a vista before you. I just wish that they showed a little bit bigger on DT. They are hard to see properly when the object of the image is further away in the photo. Great images! :0)

About me

I've started photographing a few years ago with a compact cam. In 2008 november I decided to buy a DSLR cam, and I chose a Pentax k10d. Now I'm upgraded into a Pentax K-3 for more details. I rarely use hard Photoshop effects, I'd better see the real world in my photos. My main interests are travelling and towns - and nature, of course. I think I'm good at nightscenes - however, I don't like to take photos about people, so my pics sometimes seems a little static - mainly for Stock photographing, but I don't give up. :) Lots of my photos are based on R... [Read more]
