This is a 180 degree panoramic shot from Ballard Park over looking the Intracoastal Way Way near the Eau Gallie Causeway. The timing was a trick to catch the sun peeking over the horizon. The trick is to get enough light but not so much you leave half of the shot under or over exposed. I thinking of printing this out for a wall mural.
This is some of the images I shot this month when I was hired to shoot a wedding. I try to shoot creatively and using as much light style and little post work to get to my final image. The shots I use a single strobe and the setting sun to create a mood, very little work was done in post. The real trick is mixing strobe light and sun light, what makes it a challenge is the setting sun and the color shift as it fall over the horizon.
This was from last years trip to NYC. The shot is on Grand Street between Wythe & Kent streets. I have been working with panoramic style shooting for a while and still exploring the possibilities and options this style allows.
