Bodie Island Lighthouse, Cape Hatteras National Seashore

Bodie Island Lighthouse, Cape Hatteras National Seashore (click to enlarge)

This is a “panoramic” image of Bodie Island Lighthouse I made using my Really Right Stuff PG-02 Pro Omni-Pivot Package.  Using Photoshop, I stitched together seven images to create one very large image.  The native resolution of my Nikon D300 is 18 inches by 12 inches.  By stitching together seven images, I end up with an image that is 42 inches tall by 18 inches wide (there must be some overlap between images so that Photoshop can do the stitching, that is why the image is only 42 inches tall).

Click on the image, and them click on the image again to enlarge it.  You will get an idea of how tall this image really is as you scroll, and scroll, and scroll down.  By stitching together several images I get a much higher level of resolution than if I had just blown up a typical 18 inch by 12 inch image.

Cape Hatteras Lighthouse

A “stacked focus” image of the Cape Hatteras lighthouse in Buxton, North Carolina. The image was made from two separate exposures, one with the focus on the lighthouse, the other with the focus on the sand and grass in the foreground.  Align and blend the images in Photoshop and you get nearly unlimited depth-of-field.
