I have been quite busy working on a new project so I thought I would throw up an image I have been sitting on for a while.

I took this shot on sunrise at the start of one of my Blue Mountains Day Courses earlier this year and it is a 15 image stitch shot with the 70-200 f2.8 lens on the 5D Mk II. Cropped to a 4:1 ratio.

  1. hey matt, i like this photo…but how come you mostly take the photos with dslr than your 617 film??? if you took it with you Fuji you wouldn’t have to mess around in PS stitching ans stuff, and isn’t film better quality than digital??

  2. Mitchell… I still take heaps of shots with the 6×17 I just dont get the film processed that often and it builds up. Also with this view point shooting it on digital gives me a much bigger degree of view. I cant get this angle with my GX617. Film isnt better quality than Digital. Film for me has better colour, but digital is cleaner, better dynamic range and sharper and cost free as well.

    Thanks Matt yea the colours are nice in this shot.

  3. Hi Matt,
    You say this was a 15 stitch..? Is it a race against time to get across the scene (with your lens)before the light changes too much? I was just thinking that with the sun rising the light can change every 30 seconds easily – so how do you deal with that when taking your shots left to right (or right to left) and you find that by the time you get to the other side teh light has changed and perhaps you have ‘missed the moment’?

    It’s a great shot by the way. 🙂

  4. Murray with this shots the whole sequence would have been shot in less than a minute. It wasnt that dark when I took it. But if each exposure was around 30 sec then I would work from the brighter area around to the dark. It is all trial and error but that seams to work well for me.

    Hope this helps. Thanks for posting on the blog.
