I feel nothing but anxiety at the moment. My sister and her family are in town visiting so we've been hanging out and having a good time. They know I am into photography for fun and I often send them random shots I take when emailing updates to them.
So, tonight my brother in law starts talking about Peter Lik and a few of his prints he was planning on buying. I didn't know him by name so we sat around looking at his work and it's great stuff. Nothing I could ever have the means to recreate with my skills or gear. Then the brother in law jokingly says "how about I write you a check and you make me a a print for my man room?" to which I told him the Lik would be a better shot and investment. I just thought he would possibly enjoy it more for obvious reasons.
Well, we were all calling it a night and he comes and hands me a check and says, I'll have another check for you when I hang it on my wall. So, I'm officially stressing cause I know he wants a large print and I don't have amazing gear. I feel like anything I do would probably be a let down when compared to the Lik's shots he was showing me.
Never being in this situation before, can I somehow stitch or manage some larger prints from my 5d classic? He is looking for a pano type shot around 2'x5' or possibly a little longer. I'd have to find someone to have this printed in the area he lives or shipped which I'm guessing would cost more.
I tried to steer him away from me and my photos, but he is insisting saying he sees something in my shots he likes. So, naturally it's 2:30am and I can't sleep and I'm wondering if I can even come up with something. I told him I wouldn't cash the check.
With a 5d classic, what would my options be for getting a print that big accomplished? I'm assuming stitching shots is all I can really do at this time.
