I’ve been shooting Panorama photos for a number of years but have never had more fun than the new stitching factor in Photoshop CS3. In fact, it has taken over my life.
I try to go out every day and shoot.
There are some drawbacks with storage, cameras, printing etc. but most have been overcome. I have 13 terrabytes of storage here in the studio and more CF flash cards than most Best Buy Stores.
If you haven’t tried it yet, try this: CS3 photoshop> File> Automate> photomerge> choose open files> Voila!
Then I tone map the images using Photomatix to bring out the lights and darks a bit more.

Here’s an illustration for The New York Times Sunday regional editions. As another new year begins, a grandmother reflects upon her past New Year’s Eves and how they changed as her family grew. Art direction by the gracious Richard Weigand. Happy New Years everyone!

Let her rip. Hang ten.
Well here’s the finished gazebo that my helper and I finished a few weeks ago. It’s made of Cedar, so it will last a long long time. We built the roof of Cedar too.
We made a couple of test arbors to figure out the joining of the logs and cut everything with a band saw. After awhile we were able to “guess” the angles and rough test fit the logs together. Then retrim the logs to fit.
In the spring, I plan to put the rest of the trees in and the vines on the arbors and trellises. My goal is to get the property to look more like a park. Besides, it’s a good hobby working in the fireswamp. I’m going to start work on large R.O.U.S.’s made out of topiary next. ( Rodents of unusual size.) Stay tuned.
This photo is made of 4 photos stitched together, then tone mapped in Photomatix.
