When the sun sets


Friday 27/7/13, Sunset Botany Bay, With Micah. 1/125, f4 ISO100

Being out when the sun sets like this is always stunning, Botany Bay (even), is no exception.

On Thursday (at tech) we looked into photo merge. Between LR and photoshop you have some pretty smart programming. This is my first attempt, so there are areas to work on. I have about 50 images (joined) here, maybe I could of used less,maybe more in the outer corners, next time. Jim, (my teacher) recommended these tips:

1)Focus on your subject that you want focused, then turn to manual focus. 2) Take your image 3) move up and down your subject, either side to side , or up and down, taking images,MAKING SURE you overlap by 30%. 3) Import to LR, apply lens correction, white balance if needed 4) Resize your images ( or else it will take for ever in the alignment ) and open up in photoshop either through LR:photo, edit in, merge in LR as panorama, or import under Merge to Panorama which is somewhere in Photo shop, file,merge as panorama. 4) follow the pop upsThe program does the rest. Have fun.
