That Old Tree

That Old Tree
I had the nifty fifty lens mounted on the Canon when I arrived to the old tree yestoday, so just for the fun of it I tried shooting the scene with that lens. This was the result. This is 40 photos stitched together. I think I managed to shoot it so that it looks like my normal photo of the old tree.

Looks great (but I am not sure what you are explaining - you are the master and I am learning.) I love your tree.

Covering the whole tree with the 50mm lens from where I was standing was impossible. So I aimed the camera at the closest point on the tree, took one photo with the auto focus on. I then locked the settings and shot the other 39 photos in manual mode and with manual focus. By doing that it is then easy to stitch the photos together. Pretty much the same technique you would use if you were going to take a panoramic image.

Thanks for explaining. You put a lot of effort into your photography. The end result is perfect.

Easy to you maybe Steffe, not so much to a technophobe like moi! You would never know that tree has been 'stitched' up!!

I have to try this, but I am not sure I will be able to do it...

Well I guess the fact that one can't tell how this is a stitched photo is a testament to your talent.

I remember this old tree from a long time ago when you took many pictures of it.

Forty shots to make this one image! You are a glutton for punishment. But, it is great seeing our old friend, that old tree.
