Here's another try from the other day. Totally different PP this time. The fence really gave Photoshop a hard time. I think I should have used lens correction in Lightroom before importing since there are dark vertical lines which I believe is vignetting. I thought I held better highlights in the sky but there was just too much dynamic range. I will be trying this again soon.

Thanks! I'm new to this so, my technique is probably pretty poor. I did a re-edit of this and was able to prevent the dark stripes. I used lens correction in Lightroom on one frame and it removed the vignetting. I then sync'ed the adjustments in that image with all the others before bringing everything into photoshop for merging. I did not use any vignette removal in photomerge.

This method has me very intrigued and I would really like to try it. Unfortunately, I don't have an 85 or anything longer. Would I be wasting my time trying with the long end of my 28-75mm @ 2.8? Some really cool shots in here. Thanks everyone!

Edited to say.....

So, I tried it real quick with my 50mm for a 35 image merge and PS6 keeps freezing up during the merge. I downsized the files to 4mb on export from LR4. Is my computer incapable of handling this or is it something else? Thanks!

your best bet is to use the 50mm. merging the images can take some time depending on how many shots you take, your computer and the software you use. i use CS6 to stitch, i have seen it take about an hour to stitch 100 pics in RAW, 24mb/ea. i know it's not my computer because it's the newest top of the line iMac. i found that microsoft ice is more consistent and way quicker to stitch! (ice would take about a minute to stitch 30 images, whereas cs6 would take 10-20+ mins). i would be patient, try to let it do its thing, if after 30 mins to an hour, you may want to consider upgrading your computer's memory as a starting point. processor power is the obvious way to go. good luck

Thanks! Here is my first attempt. She was cold, cranky, late for work, and this was the best crop I could get after everything was said and done. Shot with the 50. Now that I look at it, the road doesn't match up on the stitch. I'm completely lost when it comes to fixing that. Oh, and thanks!

I just have one question regarding this method. My feet stay in the same spot right? I just simply turn at the waist or whatever to grab all my images? Or do I move laterally?

Ok, i've been reading about this and looking up images and how this is done. Excuse me for my stupidity, but i have a dumb question.

Below is an example from ryan's website (click the link). Could you not do this type of shot by shooting with a wide lens and just blurring the background in photoshop?

It's not a bad question. A wide lens will cause more apparent distortion and the compression will be less. Blurring the background, unless you're very good at photoshop, will be discernible by those who are familiar with qualities of bokeh and background blur.


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.

Pretty sure posting images of someone elses work is not allowed. Links to it are ok I believe.

There are shortcuts and work arounds for all sorts of situations. Tried and true methods however are what they are, and there's a reason Ryan's method is so widely admired and imitated.

Sorry about that BigLobowski, I referenced where it came from, but didn't think about that. I've removed the photo and put in the link instead.

I was talking to my dad about this method and he's the one that brought up that he'd rather just do the blur in PS. When we have some time we're going to try this method vs PS post blur and see the difference in the results. He is much better at PS than I am as he's been working with it since version 1.
