Pano's

I havent done hardly any pano's but its a thing i want to try more once i get me new tripod

when taking the series, i assume it is best to use full manual settings. However, in situations where the light may be changing quicker than you can take the shots, would it be better to use Av to control the exposure?

Also, when taking pano's which involve water, are there any tricks to get past the waves in different positions in the different shots? (if you know what i mean)

Thanks in advance!

Steve

Re: Pano's

I'd use full manual including WB, and hope that the sun doesn't go in. Most stitching software can cope with some variations in exposure etc, but it's probably best to give it as much help as possible.

Also, if you're shooting in RAW, try to stop the processing software from doing its own thing independently to each shot.

Re: Pano's

Yep full manual and fix the WB as well. Off course shooting in RAW makes this even easier.

You might as well bracket the exposures for (future) HDRing and you might want to do some extra shots if things in the shot(s) are flapping around too much.

PS layer masks are your friend here.

Definitely full manual and if you decide to bracket then of course use the shutter speed to bracket.

Re: Pano's

I've posted some advice from Steve I've used into the tutorials section about pano's. I've followed it and used PTGui and got some great results.
