Infrared Panorama Photography From the Fitzroy Gardens

As the weather and my schedule have permitted, I have been out doing panorama photography with my IR converted Canon 350D and a slightly modified Gigapan Epic motorized panorama platform. A fairly calm and sunny day allowed me some time in the Fitzroy Gardens in Melbourne.

The day was sunny with scattered cloud, giving interesting and changeable lighting. This illustrates one potential problem when shooting on such a day. Because the amount of time to shoot a complete panorama with the Gigapan (or any other way) is substantial, the light can change during the panorama. This happened int he first panorama shown below. The sun went behind a cloud part way through the shot. You can see that the sun was hidden by a cloud for part of the shot.

If this happens you can rescue the image in Photoshop, as shown below.

  1. Hi,

    Very nice pictures. Did yoy have more information about your post-treatment process ? Lightroom? How did you select the best channel for your picture and get the best blue background?


  2. I love these panoramas, Wayne. That little Gigapan is providing you with lots of fun as well as great shots.
