So, we had weather today that’s not terribly common around here… thick fog. There’s a tree not far from our house that I’ve always liked, but the background is somewhat distracting. I figured fog would clean it up a bit, so I went out to photograph it. The problem is that it’s a little too big to photograph without including the fence (at least with the lens I had on my digital camera). I decided to photograph a couple of frames with the hopes of putting them together in photoshop. My hopes weren’t terribly high, but digital files (unlike film) are free, so I exposed a few frames.
I hadn’t used photomerge (a function in photoshop used for stitching or merging together multiple images into one). I gave it a shot and was pleasantly surprised by the results. I couldn’t find anywhere that the files didn’t match up tonally or texturally. I was also hand-holding the camera, so I expected some difficulties. Anyway, it may not be the best photograph I’ve ever taken, but I’m excited by the results.
