Well, stitching panoramas is a new thing for me. Up until now it’s possible I was just too lazy, or didn’t have the right equipment. So here are the results of 4000 k’s on the road in western Qld, experimenting with the 5D2 and Nodal Ninja head. Shooting panoramas, you actually have to think about what your doing, no more point and shoot style! As always, feedback is appreciated!
I’m always on the hunt for an image like this, and you’ve got to drive a fair distance to find a spot where the view is un-hindered for as far as you can see! So I guess you’d say I was fairly excited when we pulled up here with a storm brewing to the north. Had a few minutes where the sun decided to sneek through, and it just went pop!

Finally some new images to work with! I’ve just returned from a week in Western Queensland checking out places like Windorah, Jundah & Longreach. It was great to photograph some huge wide open spaces, and meet some classic characters too. If you can ever get out there I recommend it, only 14 hours drive from Brisbane… Here’s a couple of quick snaps, but stay tuned for more to come soon!
