TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALL GAME

May 20, 2013  •  Leave a Comment
Here is a stitched panoramic image of Target Field I created when I went to see the Twins take on the White Sox this past week. It’s a work in progress and a technique I’m still trying to master. Overall this isn’t a difficult thing to make since the stitching part in Photoshop CS5 is automated. The tricky part is knowing how many images to take and keeping the exposure and focus points consistent. After Photoshop completes the stitching, then it’s just taking the time to adjust the individual layers to make sure things are lined up correctly.
In the case of this image, I took about 30 pictures using my Canon 6D with a Canon EF 50mm f1.2 L lens. The end result isn’t bad and I like how it looks in it’s current state, but it’s not what I wanted technically. The obvious flaws that stand out (at least me) are a couple of buildings in the skyline didn’t line up correctly, the foul line in along 3rd base is crooked and I didn’t take enough photos to fill up the outer edges of the image and couldn’t crop the image in a proper way to make it a normal looking photograph. Without seeing the image up close it might be difficult seeing the flaws, but they are there. I’m going to continue to work on this image some more, but more and likely it’s going to end up in the archives somewhere and be used as a reference image later down the road. I do have other images I have taken that I need to edit and stitch together. Once I have those images ready I will post them in one of my galleries...if they turn out that is.
