The most complicated shoot I performed on my recent trip to Europe was this image. At a glance, it is a typical photo of the Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim, Norway, however if you click through, you’ll find a LOT more detail than you normally see in a photo.
This is a composite of over 800 photos, totaling over 3.9 gigapixels in resolution.
I’ll discuss the site more on the Geek Field Guide blog, and write up a how-to to make something like this yourself on this blog later.
In the meantime, take a look, and let me know what you think.
Decided to try out my new telephoto setup last night on the planets. I was in a hurry, so I shot without tripod just to see what would happen. I saw in the camera preview that Venus was a semicircle, so I declared the test a success.
Once I loaded it into Lightroom, however, I realized that the Jovian moons were visible. I’ll give it another shot tonight with a tripod and better settings.
