Auckland Harbour Bridge photo stitch
« on: October 06, 2012, 08:10:47 AM »

The Auckland Harbour bridge is a bit of a local icon, and cliche for aspiring photographers ;D

However ML helped out heaps to get a great shot!

Rather than the viewfinder I used Liveview, with a cheap 3x magnifying loupe so I could make use of some ML features to help out.

This way I could use Zebras, Focus peaking, and 10x digital zoom to get a really nice clear picture.

Since it's a stitch of about 20 photos it's important to have the tripod level, and I dont have a levelling bubble.
So I used the ML crop mark 'crosshairs', to setup my tripod with a few quick test pans, which worked great.


Picture below, warning is just under 5mb:

Thanks to the ML team for the hard work towards these great features to make nice photos easier to take.

Also used Hugin for the stitching which I highly reccomend, it's great.

Taken with 600D and 55-250mm kit lense, ISO 100, F7.1, 8sec exposure.
