Panoramic photos using the Pano app and iPhone 4S

I upgraded from my iPhone 3GS to the iPhone 4S recently. I took a few panoramic pictures using the Pano app. Below a view of Playa Santa in Puerto Rico and the view of a cloudy November sunrise as seen from my uncle’s property in Orocovis, Puerto Rico.


Fenway Park Panoramic

Ahhh…the unofficial start of summer is here…kicks off every year around Memorial Day.  This year I impulsively booked a trip to  a city that I have always wanted to visit – Boston.  JetBlue was offering a deal I could not refuse!

It wasn’t going to be a trip to Boston without a trip to the oldest Major League ballpark in the country – Fenway Park.  Unfortunately, the Red Sox were playing in Detroit, but I did get to tour the ballpark.  I love baseball games and being in a stadium like this is just awesome.  As I was sitting there taking this place in, I heard this older lady tell her husband, “Can’t you take one of those panoramic photos!?”  And  the little light bulb went off…so here is a panoramic view of Fenway Park (I don’t know why I don’t think of taking more panaramics more often).  Higher res version is here.

Fenway Pano by Melissa Mercado

I should point out my autofocus on my Tamron 17-50mm was not working at all, so I shot this using manual focus (I don’t recommend keeping your sunglasses on, as I did for many of my shots, because it doesn’t make for the crispest of photos :/).  I also auto-bracketed my exposure (-1,0,+1), combined the photos and then stitched them together in Photoshop.  I probably could have angled my camera down more, but being that this is a guided tour, you’ve gotta move along quite quickly.

Photos: Manhattan Pano’s

I’ve never attempted a panoramic photo, so this weekend, as I stood in between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges, looking towards Manhattan, I decided to take a few shots with the intent of making some panoramic photos.  My results, below (click on the photos for a higher res version or see them here).

Oh – sometime before the week’s end, I will follow up with a post showcasing some photos I took on Sunday while in NYC for quite an awesome event, “Photowalking with Joe DiMaggio: Exploring Brooklyn’s DUMBO,” offered by Adorama.  And now back to those panoramic photos I was telling you about…
