Worth the wait


This image was a composite AND a panorama, but that wasn’t what made it so hard. No, it was the Universal Law of Shooting in NYC: When you have scouted a location, and the whole time you scouted there were no people there, and you really need no people to be there, right as you’re ready to shoot a hundred schoolchildren will flood the scene.

Camera: Nikon D4
Lens: 8-image “Brenizer method” panorama with the Nikon 85mm f/1.4G (equivalent of 42mm f/0.68 according to Brett’s calculator)

Ian Baker - It may well be Central Park, but what a sense of space and scale you have achieved. Excellent shot once again.

Photos By Rikki - Awesome shot Ryan!

Monica Justesen Photography - Gorgeous! Worth the wait.

Ashley - Turned out great!

Jorge Santiago Photography - I love this one.

Rachel - Haha! I’ve been there. Found the most beautiful wooden staircase to shoot on in Germany last year. Just stunning. Came back in the afternoon with the bride and groom and just as I was about to shoot a whole herd of school students on a music camp had to come up (and then back down) the stairs. The noise was deafening, the students seemed never ending. In the end I used a slow shutter speed, got the couple to stand really still and made the movement of the children part of it. Ended up getting a far better shot than I’d originally planned.

Love this image!!

Amir | Kandid Weddings Photography - Just catching up on some of your past posts Ryan. Very cool shot and nicely executed.
