7 ideas for capturing sharper panorama images

It doesn’t matter what genere we shoot, photographers at all times appear to be on a quest for sharper photographs. Regardless of how sharp they could already be, we’re at all times attempting to squeeze just a bit extra sharpness efficiency out of our cameras and lenses. There are some things we are able to do although, significantly for panorama photographers, that don’t contain going out and shopping for costlier lenses.

On this video, panorama photographer Mike Smith walks us by way of seven of his prime ideas for getting sharper photographs when capturing landscapes. A few of them it’s possible you’ll already know and apply to your personal pictures, however there are most likely at the very least one or two that you simply won’t have tried.

A few of these ideas may appear fairly apparent, however a few of them are rather less so. You possibly can see that there’s a little bit of a theme all through the video, although, with a number of of the guidelines referring to the difficulty of cameras that transfer in the course of the time the shot is being taken, both by way of handheld digital camera actions, bodily actions contained in the digital camera (extra so for DSLRs than mirrorless cameras) or components of the setting itself.

  • 0:28 – Tip 1 is an apparent one, however lots of people neglect this
  • 1:48 – Tip 2 Get your palms off that digital camera!
  • 2:55 – Tip 3 Dial in your settings
  • 3:44 – Tip 4 Cease any motion in your digital camera
  • 4:40 – Tip 5 Taking pictures handheld has its issues
  • 7:15 – Tip 6 Taking pictures in RAW has its issues
  • 8:27 – Tip 7 Taking pictures from a tripod ideas

The primary tip Mike mentions is one which I’m actually responsible of and that’s getting your digital camera on a tripod. It’s not a lot that I neglect, I simply don’t usually have the time. It’s my very own fault, although. If I have been higher ready, I’d have already got the plate on the underside of my digital camera prepared to slide it right into a tripod every time I’m out on my travels. Most of the time, although, I don’t have that plate beneath my digital camera and wish to get the shot fast. That’s positively one I must work on!

To increase Mike’s second tip a bit, about getting your palms off the digital camera when it’s taking a shot, as a substitute of utilizing the self-timer, you should use a wi-fi distant shutter. Many cameras now function built-in WiFi and have a smartphone app that permits you to regulate settings and take a shot with out having to the touch the digital camera. Alternatively, you would go for one thing like a wi-fi intervalometer (the best way I often go).
