I’ve had a few recent posts on panoramas, so I will continue in that format. In the near future, I’ll share my protocol for shooting panoramas, and the process of stitching them together. If I’m shooting a scene that merits a panorama format I try to capture it. With landscapes, this is a bit easier, with wildlife, there is often a lot going on, including subject movement, and it can introduce complications, not to mention just forgetting to do it since you are focused on the immediate scene at hand. In this particular situation, I was photographing a different bull moose when another one approached off to the left. I backed up some since he walked right in front of me on the ridge, then stopped and stood there. I was hoping for some golden light on a subject this evening but the clouds precluded that. So, I decided to expose for the sky and make a silhouette of the moose. I unfortunately did not have my 24-105mm lens with me so I made a panorama with the 100-400mm. I used four images and blended them in Photoshop to make this scene. I lowered myself as much as possible so the belly of the moose was separated from the background mountains, which enhances the full body silhouette. In the end, and in the absence of good front light, the silhouette works in this picture. I shot a huge variation of scenes, but really wished I had that wide angle lens!
