  • I am rediscovering and totally enjoying my old photographs now that I am using Lightroom to catalogue, view and edit them.

    About fifteen years ago I took a series of photographs at St Ives in Cornwall in order to create a panoramic view. I didn't have any stitching software back then and I used something like Photoshop to manually stitch the images together, which was a right pain. For instance, as I was panning from left to right, people would have changed position, some enough to require me "cloning" them out of the picture altogether.

    I've just found out that Lightroom will take a series of photographs and merge them to create a panorama. And what a doddle it is to, and so quick. Took me around ten minutes to select, merge and export the following 12mb picture:-

            Ah, yeah, thanks! I love that one too...

            I love zooming in 1 to 1 and panning around, looking at all the stuff that was going on... Peeps walking around or standing about. Not enough detail to reveal individual faces, but enough to see the range of humans, in all their holidaying glory haha

            And then there's the boats and houses and shops... I can lose myself in this old picture for a good few minutes each time a open it. Not a great picture in photography terms... Exposure, colour and what have you. But I am not too bothered about that.

            cheers

            • Is that the same St. Ives of the famous riddle

              "As I was going to St. Ives, I met a man with seven wives. Every wife had seven sacks, every sack had seven cats, every cat had seven kitts. Kitts, cats, sacks, wives, how many were going to St. Ives?"

                    • Nice picture GregH

                      Was it just that one you took?

                      I'd have been tempted to take various shots using different apertures, shutter speeds and what have you.

                      On the other hand, if all you had with you was a smart phone then, yeah, you are kind of limited.

                      Good idea though... Makes me want to go start a very small fire somewhere haha!

                        thanks - I just use auto on my point and shoot camera most times - but it is a very good auto on a very good point and shoot Sony RX100 mark4 . Such a great camera that fits into a pocket so is easy to always have on me. I took I think about 4 or 5 shots and then picked the one I liked most, then slight tweak in Photoshop. I love having a campfire at home - as does my partner Lani, she was the one who got it going tonight. That large wok makes a great firepit - at the time we bought it firepits were expensive and the wok was $35

                        • Yeah, always good to have a point and shoot thing as well as the old DSLR...

                          As for a fire pit... Sounds like a great idea, although I've never been one for BBQ's. A wok, though... Now you're talking haha!

                          • Pinhole camera anyone? As teenager, I tried this sometimes. Now it’s time again. The first picture is “camera 1”, a tea caddy. As film I use photo paper. The result is negative, of course. You can use this picture as a negative and create a positive image. Works fine. But I think it’s okay to cheat. I scanned the picture and inverted in the computer. No more editing than that. The second picture is one I took yesterday. Sunny November around 3pm. “shutter time” (removing a bit of electrical tape) 15 seconds. A little to short time…
                            Today I will take 2 more pictures during my lunch break. Very sunny today. I have downloaded an app that measures light – or something. Anyway, I will use this to get a more objective measure than “bright day light”.
                            It’s important to get to know your gear…

                              Nice one! I remember doing stuff like this...

                              I keep meaning to do something similar to capture the sun's corona... Same principle, and a lot safer than looking directly at the sun haha!

                              • Since the week end my part of Sweden have had a wonderful autumn weather. Clear skies, sunny and crispy mornings. Maybe the high contrasts this leads to makes it difficult for a pinhole camera? Took 2 pictures yesterday. One was overexposed. The one below better.
                                Today I will try to find a photo spot with less contrast during lunch and use camera 1 there. I have another idea for camera 2 (also a tea caddy about the same size, 10cm high and 6cm wide). When I develop I don’t interrupt the process. I want to find the right shutter times for different conditions.
