1 Day: Panoramic Photography - Capture

San Francisco, California

July 30, 2016

10 participants (SOLD OUT)

Photographers think of panoramic photography as panning left to right. This workshop goes many steps further. You’ll learn to shoot panoramic images from a technical and compositional standpoint then expand to photographing horizontal, vertical and focus stacking panoramas. More importantly, you’ll learn a repeatable process and the critical steps to capture enough content to make your panos.

You’ll also learn and practice the “sketching technique” and the various steps to plan for a successful pano capture.

You’ll get demonstration on stitching panos using various software, their pluses and minuses, and the pitfalls the instructor has learned over the years. It will save you many hours of figuring out what is the best solution for your needs.

Upon signing up for the workshop, you will receive a coursebook that details the photoshoot locations, what to bring and a workflow for pano photography.

What you'll learn: • The Ins and Outs of shooting panoramic images (vertical, horizontal, focus stacking)
• Tips learned and applied over the years to capture stunning panos
• Sketching technique – critical to make impactful panos
• Focus stacking – when, why and the pitfalls
• Demonstration of various software to stitch and merge your images
• How to immerse yourself in panoramic photography (not to be missed!)

We are looking forward to meeting you at the panoramic photography workshop.

Don't delay your registration, as there is very few sessions scheduled this year.

Oliver Klink’s nature images have been published in National Geographic, Days of Japans, European wildlife, and many more. His panos have received numerous mentioned in the Spidar Award photo contests, and won grand prize for the “Great migrations” at the PhotoCentral Springshow. “Panoramic photography is challenging. It is not just about making bigger images, but rather building a canvas to fit your vision. The sketching technique is a must have tool to complete your image successfully. The more you do it, the more you become creative to turn a documentary image into fine art.”
