Drone Panography?

Could I make a BIG (multi-shot, high res) panorama with a drone? I’ve never used one, so there is that, but is it even possible?  The photo I want to take would be straight down from the drone, not looking out across the horizon.

I asked this question over on Facebook and it sparked a very lively discussion.  Have a look here.

South Carolina is a beautiful place.  Admittedly I do take some artistic license as well.  I like to make things mine.  Or show them through my own personal filter.  How do you feel about photo editing?  Do you feel photographs should show exactly what a place or person looks like?  Or is it ok for artists to present them as them choose?

I’m melting.

Thinking of snow as I currently melt in the southern US. ❄️ (note the two people for scale)

Sossusvlei 5738

I would love to be back in this place rather than having a pipe dug up from beneath my garage. ~sigh~

Where would you like to be?

De Kelders 4873

This is not a view of De Kelders, but rather from it. I hope your Sunday is this relaxing. I am spending mine reading, printing and preparing gifts.

Tech: Canon 5dmk3, 70mm , ISO 100, F11, 25 seconds, single image.

De Kelders 4614

Sometimes colour appeals. I’m still revisiting my images from South Africa. Circumstances have kept me from going outward to shoot recently, so I’ve been “traveling” through my hard drives. 

For the tech people: Canon 5d3, 24-105 lens, ISO 100 F11, 30 seconds, multi-image stitch.

Sossusvlei 5769

As I was looking through photos today, I realized that I never shared any from this trip. Namibia is AMAZING. If you ever get the chance – go.

What is your next dream destination?

(For the gear people, this is a three photo stitch made with the Canon 24mm TS lens)

Tatoos Disappear in Wet Collodium Prints!

Fascinating!!  If you are interested in alternative processes, this is definitely worth a few minutes read.

“Bradley was fascinated by the fact that the analog photographic process, widely thought of as genuine and authentic, showed a twisted version of reality.”
