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.

Take a look at
The long image above is about 48 inches wide and nearly a gig in size. It's made up of 34 individual photos.

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.

More sketches from the same session I posted about below. This time the model posed for two minutes before changing position. These drawings were done at the Monday night figure drawing session at the Brooklyn Artist Gym, held each week from 6:30 to 9:30 pm. The sessions are open the public and only $10 for non BAG members. Stop by if you are interested. More info can be found here: There is also 3 hour long pose session on most Saturdays.

Recently I attended a few figure drawing sessions after having not done so in a while. I had forgotten how much fun can be had creating quick sketches while the model rotates through a series of short poses. They are like calisthenics for the hand and eye.

Josh Brown and Jeff Rooney operate the Capacitor Design Network, a very rad agency which works out of Burlington VT/Portland OR. They contacted me about illustrating my interpretation of a volcano for a Gordini magazine ad. I was stoked to have the opportunity to draw mountains, yetis, a volcano - stuff thats right in my wheelhouse. It was an interesting challenge incorporating this photo of Banks Gilberti jibbing in Colorado with my illo and ultimately a really fun project to work on. Click on the image for a larger view.

Here's a good interview with Josh and Jeff from the folks at Josh Spear.
