Smith Island Update: Day 6 Immersive Photography

We bid farewell to the first group of workshop attendees early yesterday morning as wind and rain lashed at the decks in Smith Island. Throughout yesterday and today, rain, mixed with heavy tides has flooded the low lying coastal areas of Tylerton, the home for our workshop. Today’s high tide brought calf-deep water to the path along the coast and even the fire station, the workshop HQ had a couple inches of water lapping at the front step.

This afternoon, while getting ready for our next group, I photographed a quick collage of Smith Island from the fire house, one of the highest points on the island. You can zoom and pan into the image using the controls. Although there are a few stitching errors, this quick, scattershot panorama consisting of 36 separate images taken with the Olympus E-P1 gives a good impression of what it was like looking out across flooded streets toward the bay.

  1. Looks pretty neat, Jay (not the flood, obviously). Zooming in gives a 3d feeling to the photo. I’ll have to try one myself.

  2. I want to thank you for your photoshop tutorials which are clear and well structured: they helped me a lot . . . \\ I’m planning to buy “Photomatix” for picture fusion. I tried it and it seems to do a good job when used to do what it was made for. What is your opinion on that software?

  3. Michael,

    Thanks for your comment. Photomatix is the best software I’ve tested for assembling/adjusting HDR images. I think you’ll really enjoy using it.
