Rain Rain Go Away....
Today I went out with my camera's to see what I would find. I looked at the map, and chose an area that I thought would be interesting and headed off. The weather was perfect today; it wasn't too cold, some sun, but also excellent, well defined clouds. I took this opportunity to try out my 5x4 camera again. Just as I put the camera on the tripod, the rain started to come down. The rain the was very light to begin with, so I didn't see it as a problem, and carried on shooting. Then, as I started to work out my exposure, the heavens opened, and it started pouring down. I had to rush my light metering, so i'm not sure if its 100% correct, but hey ho, we shall see. I shall post the results when have them developed.
I have really gotten into panorama's lately, I tend to shoot one every time I go out. I mainly use wide angle lenses for landscapes. This is fine 90% of the time, but sometimes, you just cut get wide enough, and if you go too wide, then you get lots of distortion, and things start to look strange. I like how panorama's create and natural looking wide angle effect. I normally shoot my panorama's in portrait orientation, and overlap by 30-40%. When the photos are put through Photoshop, the software can easily stick the photos together.
