First try of Sony HX100V sweep panorama

Ok I know Ive been real real slack when it comes to posting anything for a while (promise to make more of an effort)

At work we recently got a Sony DC HX100V bridge camera that has a 16 mp resolution, GPS location, 27 to 800 mm lens and heaps and heaps of features BUT one feature that I was keen to try was its High Res seam-less sweep panorama images

The photo below is nothing special just a quick try with the new camera on the High res sweep panorama..no stiching, no burning..all Ive done is cropped and adjusted the contrast just a little.

I’m off on five weeks traveling with the camper trailer in May and I’m just wondering if work will miss the camera for 5 weeks..Im keen to try it out on some of those wide blue sky outback landscapes..I’ll keep you posted.

Hi There..An Oyster Harbour Sunrise..Albany..WA

Welcome to my first blog entry for John Grant Photography. In the coming weeks I will endevour to post some of my  photographic experiences.  One of my favorite images taken was at the end of my road in Albany West Australia…It was a magic morning…a very still night. and a cold front was approaching . One of photographer guru Scott Kelby’s comments that always stick in my mind is, “Nice shot but you missed the best lighting by 10 minutes”..his advice is to be there before the moment and after the moment that way you don’t have any excuse.

As such I was down on the banks of Oyster Harbour  Albany, with head torch on, 40 minutes before the sun appeared, not a whisper of wind around, mirror water, clouds approaching and sun coming up..the results the attached photo….I think I nailed it..but Im always open to comments.

Kind Regards

An Oyster Sunrise
