In Mamer, Luxembourg, close to the European School, there are some remains of Roman baths. I had lunch there and wanted to shoot it. Later on I decided to apply different types of panorama; here’s the result:
And my favorite, the stereographic down panorama, making panoramas look like a planet:
And thanks to Frederic, who kept me company while I was shooting 630 photos (126 photos with 5 different exposures each).
I shot this above the Bock casemates
The opposite of light is dark, the absence of light is shadow. Interpret this into a masterpiece.
I have to admit that I wasn’t too inspired. In fact, it was difficult to find shadow outside because of the lack of sunlight.
So, here I am again with the weekly challenge. This time it is about a great opportunity to explore panorama stitching and create a wide sweeping landscape.
I first tried from the balcony of my office room, played with Photoshop Photo Merge, and decided to use Lightroom to create the panorama – it seems to handle raw files better when it comes to vignetting. Then I started putting a lot of energy and time into this project and asked myself many questions, including about the ratio to use and found out that 3×1 is a good bet because we can find frames using this ratio. All camera settings are manual, including focus and bracketing was enabled to catch different exposures. But you have been warned, the pictures are great (in size) – please download them if you like 😉
And here are some pictures captured while training for the shootings:
The panorama has just started; I will definitely make more, thinking of an album of Luxembourg panoramas.
