Well, the ultimate show...





180°, 6 photos put together. Left is south, right is north. The only problem was to blend over the lighter sky where the lightning was. And no, I didn't take that photo later. It happened right when I wanted to make the last shot (taken from left to right). XD The only photo I managed to get of such during the whole shot. The more amazing ones are on video, though.

Wouw ... Angst! ;) ... Ja Unwetter fangen ist immer schwierig, aber irgendwie hast du's hingekriegt das ganze so wirklich gruselig aussehen zu lassen wie's wahrscheinlich wirklich war. Das zusammenbasteln bringts echt. Coole Sache. :butterfly:

Es war - (ich hasse solche Phrasen, aber jetzt benutze ich sie ausnahmsweise) - das Abgefahrenste, das ich je gesehen hab. Die ganze Stimmung war einfach nur - sagen wir, es hat mich fast umgehauen. Es ist ein Wunder, dass ich während dem Staunen überhaupt Photos zustande gebracht hab.

Und danke! :blushes:

You roof has a nice view... :wow: I don't really understand how these stitched panoramas work... don't you have to be pretty quick about it? Because if the clouds move and change very fast wouldn't it make it difficult to put together? Yet I can never see any edge lines...

It does(and that's one of the reasons I don't really want to move from where I live XD).

Some people use special programs/panorama options the camera has for that, but I prefer doing it all "by hand". Yes, fast moving clouds can be a problem, but the faster you are, the better. And you got to know at least a bit about how your camera reacts on light/shadow. Never do something like this immediately. You might miss a great moment, but it's better to do some photos in the respective situation before you really try to shoot a panorama.
Find a rather constant line(like the horizon) and try to keep it within a specific area of the screen. Hold the camera firmly and move it along that "line", while; if you move to the right for example; the left end of the new photo overlaps with the right end of the previous photo within about a fifth of your camera screen(or view, if you don't use a digital camera).
Turning off the preview option temporarily also helps if you need to be fast with your shot. Be careful to have your eyes on the screen. ;P
Remember that moving over a direct light source will change the contrast radically! You might have to leave the "line" for one or two photos. Post-processing will be more dificult as well. And no matter how strict you move along the "line", there is always a lot to be cut away afterwards and maybe even parts to be filled or photos to be tilted/distorted.

After failing with a few panoramas and wasting some time however, you will know better where to be careful. Also the sky is better for that stuff than a focus on the land(or even water, which can be horror, the more waves it has). I had to clone some parts of the clouds of course. But I was lucky enough to not needing to change any colours.
If you want something as neat as this, it won't work without a bit of retouching anyway. (Or you have to be super good. My mother still uses an analog camera and likes to do panoramas as well. She can keep the change of colour/contrast and variations at the edges at a minimum already. But even she was a beginner once. ;)) That needs training too. But after removing masses of pimples, I think I got some training. :giggle: And the bigger the ratio is, the more you will have to clone or cut away. Also a plain, cloudless sky isn't that perfect for retouching either. You will have to do a REALLY clean work on those. :X
And for overlapping - you might have to change the transparency of the photos various times(so, working with layers) to see what fits and how much space you still have. The more they overlap, the more space to play you have. But it will also mean more photos to get the range you want. If it fits, use a soft eraser, maybe slightly transparent. Of course you'll have to change the size and soft edge of the eraser depending on how plain the area you're working on is(same goes for cloning).

I hope I didn't forget anything and that you understood everything, as well as that it will help you at least a bit. :blushes:


P.S.: I don't have a super special camera. It works with any. ;)

Right. Piece of cake. :faint: ahem, yeah, I'm going to save up for a wide angle lens... but a friend of mine has a camera with a special panorama setting which helps you with the overlapping. Perhaps I'll borrow it from her sometime and give this a try :D
Thanks for your detailed answer :)

XD Sorry.

Yeah. Maybe that will help.

My camera has such a panorama setting too, but it takes too long to load if there's a scenery like this. I already experienced that with the previous camera I had. So I gave up and did it manually. But it might be a great help for the beginning and - for still scapes.

No problem. ^^
