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 GigaPan Epic is designed to only handle smaller compact digital cameras. But a bit of ingenuity allowed me to use my Canon 350D, which was converted for infrared photography, with the Epic to produce IR panoramas.
The GigaPan Epic is designed for small, compact digital point and shoot cameras. Yet a half hours work with some aluminum, a drill and a thread-tapping device will remove many of the limitations and allow you to take panoramas with larger cameras, including dSLRs.

Yesterday I needed to get out for some emotional recovery time doing photography. So I spent the day till the weather closed in too much driving through the country around Gisborne and Romsey in Central Victoria.
An old technique has a new lease on life in the digital world of Photoshop to create interesting images from both compact digital cameras and from dSLRs. Back in the dark ages when I shot film 🙂 I used a creative technique called tri-color photography. In this technique I would set my camera, then a …
