Calgary Skyline II

Panorama Photography Tips

Gear Used:

This is 7 shots stitched together in portrait orientation using Photoshop. Shot at 70mm, f/11, 1/20s, and iso 100. With overlapping and cropping that works out to be about 68 megapixels for the final image.

I don’t normally link to higher resolution copies of my photos, but it’s difficult to see a panorama of this size at lower resolutions.

These are some crops of the image that show just how much detail is in the photo.

    Being the 4G Smartphone camera user that I am, I didn’t understand most of your explanation….but I understand enough to know that it wasn’t a point and shoot moment and that you put a lot of work into creating this beautiful image. I find it breathtaking. Thank you for sharing it with us. I love snapping pics (hope to purchase a real camera in the future) and spent many wintery mornings out capturing images. Funny, everything I see now looks like a magnificent photograph just waiting for capture…..and every pic I capture seems to be a blog just waiting to be written. You are a marvel. Nicely done. xoJulia (“Journey with Julia” blog).

    fantastic detail in this photo…beautiful color, the process to produce the panoramic shot is beyond me…I don’t have Photoshop, eventually I hope to.

    I was stationed in the US Air Force in Montana so I had a few opportunities to get to Calgary in the four years I was out there. Calgary is, in my opinion, the most beautiful and cleanest city I’ve ever seen. This is a gorgeous shot, thanks for sharing it!

    I live in Calgary too but don’t get into downtown much–I usually only see it from south Calgary–but the way you see it through your lens makes me want to get up close and look up at those new buildings! Beautiful. And I appreciate the photography tips, too!
