Hairpin Pano
Posted By: VaughnA, 07-05-2009, 06:56 PM

Yesterday was our annual 4th of July bike ride. But 8 miles in my bike broke a spoke. I limped back to the start and drove the route with my camera taking pictures of the group as they did the ride. I placed myself at a nice tight hairpin hoping to get a panorama shot as my friends rode by. Setting up the K10 with continuous I took a series of shots. My first attempt at a pano shot. I wish I'd used a bit higher shutter speed to cut down on blur.

Hey, thats a great pano. I just finished a number of boring panos for family so its real nice to look at something more interesting. Not sure how you moved the cam and reset that fast between shots #2 and #3. That is the same rider through the series correct? Really nice result for a first pano.

That is the same rider. Since I wasn't planning on this set when I left my house I did it all handheld with the camera on continous and just let it rip. I just tried to make sure to keep the camera panning level. I wanted a good dof with a small aperture but I screwed up and over did it at the expense of motion blur. I'd like to try it again in the future with a tripod.

Way Cool!

Almost looks like a multiple exposure with a fisheye lens.

Makes sense. I didnt see how you could have moved and reset that fast with a tripod, at least not without a lot of practice. Hey, great result for handheld! I think it looks way more interesting with a little blur in the trees and the rider placed 4 times rather than perfect trees and only see the rider twice.
