Subject: Rooftop Panoramic
Although the weather wasn't quite as supportive as I like, I did complete this weeks project - my Rooftop Panoramic! This panoramic is comprised of 13 photographs, and shows the view from our apartment's roof. I tried to be consistent in taking the photographs (focal length, aperture, and shutter speed), as to make the photos all have the same look and feel before combining them. One odd effect, that I did not expect, was the "curved" aspect of the center part of the shot. I believe this effect occurred because I was walking along the edges of the roof taking pictures so the shots were not taken from the same "plane" as each other (unlike the first two tests, where I did not really move while taking the photos). Either way, I think the effect is quite interesting, a sort of "mock-fisheye-lens" look.
The overall size of this photo, if printed, would be 8" x 38" (over 3' long!). I might look into seeing how much it would cost to get a print this large, perhaps on canvas (so I wouldn't have to cut a mat-board or try and find a frame for it!). I hope you all like it, as before it is a bit of a large picture so to see the large version, click on the small thumbnail picture below and then once it loads click on it again to expand it to the larger size.
