Stacked and Stitched

In preparation for my up and coming trip on True North on Saturday with Christian Fletcher, I set about seeing what I need to do in order to get a file size that could match a Phase One file with my new 5D MK2.

This image is an 8 shot stitch with my 50mm prime, 4 across the top and 4 underneath, but the bottom 4 were also focus stacked.

The resultant file size was 10,000 pixels by 7100 pixels at 300 DPI which is indeed comparable to the Phase files.

This trip coming up will be the start of the Kimberley project that I have been invited to do with fellow Photographers: Christian Fletcher, Tony Hewitt, Peter Eastway, Les Walkling and videography will be handled by Mike Fletcher.

I think I will be doing a fair bit of stacking and stitching on this trip!

For those of you who were at my talk at Foto Freo, this shot is a classic example of the techniques we discussed during that talk.

Bathurst Lighthouse, Rottnest

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Whilst waiting for the colours to glow on the Western side of Rottnest on Saturday morning’s sunrise shoot, this shot presented itself to me and I clipped off the 50mm and opted for the trusted 28-300mm L series…crikey that lense has done some work!

There was a nice glow happening around the lighthouse and I am pretty happy with how this shot worked out in the end.
