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)

  1. 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!!
