Vertical Drop…

by on Apr.11, 2017, under Life, Photography

I’d lugged my freakishly heavy Novoflex multi row pano kit all the way down the vertical drop to the base of the falls. I’d also be looking at hauling myself along with it and the rest of my heavy camera bag back up. So be-damned if I wasn’t going to try and use it whilst I was here :).

NIKON D750 + 24.0-70.0 mm f/2.8 @ 31 mm, 4 sec at f/16, ISO 100 x 4 Frames

I was quite happy with how this vertical panorama turned out. It’s composed of four vertical frames stitched into a vertorama of the falls from nearly top to bottom. Well not quite bottom since there was another 100m vertical drop off a cliff just a metre behind me :).

Anyway IMHO the vertical pano put together with 31mm source frames looks a lot better than a single ultra wide angle frame would (assuming I could even get this vertical field of view at 12mm).

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.

Alas the horizontal panorama didn’t turn out anywhere as pleasantly as I’d originally envisaged in my mind. In the photography world – them’s the breaks.
