Working a composition...

Working a composition...



At our recent trip to the Silk Mill we captured the iconic elevator with the iconic spools inside. You can see our thought process and what we created and the progression below...

The first image (5 exposure HDR) was taken wide-angle from the top floor. 24mm


The next image came about from walking in closer and zooming in more 62mm


The third image came about from walking in closer and zooming in more 70mm


The four image was a 20 image vertorama composite (4 horizontal compositions, 5 exposures each)


The fifth image was a 35 image vertorama composite (7 horizontal compositions, 5 exposures each)


and the last image was a 50 image vertorama composite (10 horizontal compositions, 5 exposures each)



 Then we closed the door near that stairwell, it did not close all the way, allowing a ray of light to come in


Noticing that the left side of the door was not included we created a stitched image using two vertical HDR captures 


I love stitched images, and they give you room (and pixels) to composite as well.
