Vertical Seam

by on Sep.26, 2019, under Life, Photography

Ten minutes later and the milky way is pretty much as aligned with the vertical seam of the gorge as it was going to get

… and quickly moving to the right so we had to shoot quickly

NIKON Z 7 + 14.0 mm f/2.4 @ 14 mm, 15 sec at f/2.4, ISO 6400 x 6 Frames

My new friend was shooting with a wider focal length than I was (24mm vs my 14mm). This meant he was overlapping less (I was at over 50%) and needing to shoot more frames. And he was manually moving the camera on a ball head vs my relatively simple panorail step movements

I was doing the light painting of the gorge walls during our exposures which gave him the time to shoot and adjust

I’d do one minimally lit exposure time followed by a more well lit one and repeat. This gave us two options for each composition frame for stitching later

This image here is a result of stitching a set of more well lit frames which I darkened a little in post
