As I mentioned yesterday, I was up early on Monday for some sunrise shooting in Gloucester, MA. Although it’s known as a vibrant fishing community, there are other parts that are far less commercial but equally photogenic. With that in mind, I chose to visit the salt marshes this time around. I’ve always really enjoyed photographing them, but I went there this time mostly because I didn’t get going soon enough to reach the harbor by sunrise. 🙂
While I made it here just as the sun was coming up, I was disappointed that there was not a single cloud in the sky, so I decided to try some different things. This image is a five shot panorama that I created in CS5. It was my first time trying this technique, and it will require a great deal of practice to learn the nuances of combining multiple shots in varying light (I already know that I should’ve bracketed each shot for more control of the final product). I’m definitely up for the challenge, however, as I really like what’s possible when creating panoramic images. Cloudless sky aside, I’d love to get your feedback on this one, as your input will help me further develop my skills in this area. Thanks.
