Playing, Part II

Yesterday (6th May), inspired by Jeff Goulden and Mike Smith on Fstoppers, I shot my first panorama on a camera (having tried without much luck shooting panoramas on my phone). It was hurried, playful, non-serious. Fun! Both Jeff and Mike suggested shooting panoramas handheld would work, and that’s what I tried. As Mike said, just shoot, move a bit but with overlap with the previous shot, shoot again, etc. Following his advice, I kept the settings the same

Evening, 6 May, 2022, shooting handheld, ISO 640, f/4.5 at 1/250s, Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II.


Now, dawn today (7th May), from the same place on Highway 180 in Flagstaff.


I panned more this morning, took more shots to add to the panorama, and included the iconic San Francisco Peaks of northern Arizona. It is much shorter and longer, presumably because of the greater number of shots included.
