Forest Mushrooms

Macro panoramics. Was in the forest looking for cool leaves and to do a little experimentation. Thought these came out interesting. Each pano is 3 separate photos from Nikon 85mm PC tilt/shift lens. It’s hard to choose a focal point for the macros. Sort of have to choose one mushroom you want in focus, and let the rest fall as they may. I think a fill light could have helped a bit as well, maybe I’ll try using a small reflector some time in the future.

    Ya, you can see my thought process as I was getting closer and closer. I think by the last one I was on my 7th or 8th “I’m just going to take one more” photo, so had to give up at there and get back to the ‘walking.’

    Yep, can’t tell they were merged at all. The edges didn’t align 100% on the last one, but as the R and L image have about 40% overlap on the center image, was no problem to make them work with some masking. Not sure if there was parallax error due to being macros or if I just bumped my tripod, as it wasn’t very secure, sitting on a bunch of dead leaves and branches.

    Without knowing more details, all I can say is ‘maybe.’ Do you need a macro lens, or just the ability to to pano’s? I would say it would probably help, but it’s an expensive lens, so if you could rent it first to see if it will work for you, that would probably be best.
