Tool: Rebel T1i EOS 500D
Setting: Manual – metered for the rich sky coloration
We were to take a panorama and then either put it together in Photoshop or physically print up to 7 pictures and paste them to a backing.
I chose Mom’s farm (my childhood stomping grounds). After several tries with lighting (all photos were suspposed to have the same exposure which was hard because of the trees), I obtained an exposure that really showed the clouds off and still kept a rich color going on.
The professor said it had nice coloring with a faded, old world look to it. Hmmm…Mom just painted her fence. I am not sure she will be thrilled about that faded comment. I think he meant how the lighting caused the whole picture to appear. [Note: we were to turn it in with the edges showing so I am leaving it like that here. There is one missing on the right side, but it won’t all fit here.]
I had fun with this and it gives me good feelings.
Update: Grade is 100% and the teacher said he showed it around! Funny how something I think is just ok will actually impress the teacher. Other times, I think something is cool and I miss the boat. As my teachers often say… “It is all subjective.”
