Perception of Depth: San Francisco Cityscape

July 27, 2015  •  1 Comment

I always imagined if I had a real large format camera and I could capture the complete details of this beautiful city of San Francisco. Well to get this idea a reality in digital world, where large electronic sensors of Cameras are cost prohibitive, I decided to create a 200+ Megapixels of panorama by combining several smaller pictures where a panoramic  picture has enough details for  printing up to 4 ft by 14 ft without losing any details. 

Technical:

In order to get this vision to reality, I took about 40 individual shots using a telescopic lens (Canon EF 100-400 mark II) on Canon 5D mark III camera capturing every details of the scene. I had to use Apple Macbook PRO (with 16 GB RAM) to get every details combined from those 40 shots and make one panorama. I used Capture One 8 to process each individual image and I later combined using Photoshop CS6. Location of this picture is Forest Road in Treasure Island in San Francisco City.

Calla Lilies of Doud Creek, Garrapata SP, California

March 10, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
I took my family for a quick outing to Carmel, California around 17 mile drive. We were done well before evening and decide to head south. I stopped by at Doud creek for a quick trip to beach. 
To my surprise, I discovered 400-500 people on little creek area, atleast 100 of them must be photographers. Later I found out it was famous bloom of Call Lillies during March-April Season. I had to capture this beauty. So I setup my camera and clicked few snaps just to make sure I have few shots without people. Heavy fog moved in before towards evening so my hopes of capturing the sunset colors were dashed so I moved on towards BIXBY Bridge..
