Panorama Post Processing Tips

It feels like I’ve been planning to live stream forever but today it finally happened for real. In this live video I run through some of my post processing tips and tricks to go from a bunch of pretty average RAW files to the pano you see here. Being a streamed video there was a chance for me to answer questions from the live chat, obviously that’s not possible now but if you do have any question feel free to add them to the comments below.

Tower Bridge ViewOne the great things, and frustrating things, about making pano’s is not knowing how the final image will look. We’re all so used to instantly reviewing our photos that the sense of mystery and excitement about our photos has almost been lost. This photo is a perfect example. Taken in 2013 it sat, over looked, on my hard drive for months before I finally got around to stitching it and revealing the image in it’s full glory.

Top Tip: You can skip the first 45 seconds of the video;-)

Once I remembered the correct sequence of buttons to press, I was live streaming for 30 minutes and it was amazing to get instant feedback and comments. A huge thanks goes to Sam who was kind enough to keep the questions flowing along to me from the chat room and an even bigger thanks to those that were able to join me live.

I’ll be doing more live streaming, including some live shoots in the future. Details will most likely appear on my twitter feed and on Facebook.
