Lobster Traps & Buoys

632 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Bernard, Maine

I photographed this small wharf at Thurston’s Lobster Pound in Bernard, Maine on September 12, 2016, 17:56, while teaching a panorama workshop. The wharf was in shade while the sun was hitting the boats in Bass Harbor in the background.

I wanted a selective focus on the buoys and ropes with the lobster traps and harbor providing a blurry backdrop and plenty of negative space on the wharf in front of the pile of buoys to blur as well, like a tilt/shift lens effect.

It’s about a 48mm field of view, so I could have shot it with a 45mm f/2.8 tilt/shift lens, but I didn’t have one with me. Instead, I used my 70-200mm f/2.8 at 200mm, f/2.8, ISO 64, 1/160, focused on the buoy I wanted to be the sharpest, chose the corners of my scene, and shot a bokehrama of 7 columns and 6 rows. I rotated every 5° and tilted every 5° for plenty of overlap, because the focus distance was only 29 feet away and the blurred out foreground was even closer.

I then aligned all the images with PTGui Pro and blended them with Photoshop. The finished panorama is a little over 630 megapixels and can easily be printed 10 x 7 feet with excellent image quality.

Camera settings: 200mm, f/2.8, ISO 64, 1/160.

Stitching data: 6 rows of 7 images for a total of 42 images.

Equipment used: Nikon D810, Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II, Really Right Stuff TVC-34L tripod & pano/gimbal head. RAW conversion to 16-bit TIFF via Lightroom, aligned via PTGui Pro, and blended in Photoshop.

Photographic print

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology. Learn more.
