During my workshops and tours we also touch pano shoots. Obviously not an easy exercise. We often have trees and bushes in our composition and the ground is pretty unstable, often wet and muddy. I have created a series of “5” (tips) cards (also for my own memory) which I carry with me and which I handout to the members of my party. May be they could be useful for you as well. Best printed in 4×6” format using your local printer and stored in your camera bag. Happy days. Reinhold
Never tried to capture the Dänikhorster Moor (Entrance Area) as a whole. I shot 10-12 individual images of each location and created 4 panoramic images. To shoot about 40 images was quite a challenge in the short time frame of the sun rising. But everything worked out quiet well. Hope you will enjoy the “tour” of the moor. Happy days.

Yesterday evening we met our new neighbors for the first time in our new home. They told me about an eagle owl nearby which regularly attacks the dogs. So I tried my luck to capture an image of this owl. Ahhh… what should I say…nice walk, no owl. May be next time. On my way back I passed our access point to the lake. It was gray all day long. While I was watching the scene, the sky cleared in some areas. I set up tripod and camera and captured 2 shots (1 regular shot, 1 pano which is made up out of 7 images). And again… it is always good to carry the gear. Happy days. Reinhold
My pano procedure: I level my tripod, set the camera to M, select aperture and shutter speed (f9 / 1/60sec), set ISO to 200 (lowest ISO for the X-T1 at RAW file setting), set White Balance to “cloudy”, use the 10sec timer (to avoid that the camera is still shaking from the shutter release) and usually I create 5-7 overlapping images (portrait -> more space to crop the image). This time is used no filter.
I captured this image (these images) in the Fintlandsmoor. I used a leveled tripod, a 14mm lens and shot 9 overlapping shots to create this panorama. I created the basic panorama image in Lightroom and did the rest of the work in Photoshop. The image has a size of 10.000 x 4000 px.
