Photographers should explore another way to use the stitching mode of their computer programs like Adobe Photo. I have samples here (pictures I can make a print for you) that I like.
My newest adventure in the way of stitching involves three separate images that could not be stitched.
I was in Woodstock Vermont at an event in this towns big white Universalist church. I went outside in the bright sun to get a study of this church and my mate Donna came with me. This is good because I always find that I will incorporate Donna in my picture. She is usually standing at the bottom right of my compositions when I do landscapes. This is where artists sign their creations. Donna in this way is the signature of my picture.
I did not have special cameras with me but I did have a really neat Kodak pocket camera. I got across the street in front of the church and I made my picture. I have this picture attached here with Donna in the picture right where she belongs.
Also, there was a young boy standing on the church entry steps who was curious about my picture taking. You will see him in my first church picture.
After I took this picture I could not help notice that the boy was performing a sort of play-like choreography stepping and swirling around one of the church pillars. I took a few telephoto mode pictures of this activity. I later decided to have three of my tele pictures in incorporated into one picture somehow.
So, I opened my panorama stitching program and called up three images of the young boy performing for my camera. I knew that I could not stitch these but I wanted to try something ? I wanted the three pictures together in one scene. I used other artistic mode facilities of my computer as well.
I have the first church picture here then my mew scene … “Spy Boy in Step” This is a one act picture play production ! I also have a six picture farm field study and stitch of three 4×5 B&W images.
I can make an 8 1/2 X 11 digital archival print for $20 of any of my images. Allow $4 for shipping.
