Another experiment with panoramic photography (click picture for full image.)
I have been asked to take a panoramic photo of the entire CCHS school population, so I wanted to experiment with things that are moving and to see how they will blend when I put the images together (because nobody can stand completely still, and in a group that large, somebody's gonna move.)
Moving people worked out just fine. Moving cars, not so much. Check out the red mini-SUV in the front! It looks like a tiny toy car. I would totally buy something like that, though. It would have to get crazy good gas mileage!
I guess people are smaller than cars and don't move far enough within a frame to get messed up. They do get repeated if they move from one frame to another during shooting, though -- but that isn't hard to fix in Photoshop, and nobody's going to move that much in the portrait.
