We are fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful places on earth. My goal is to share the beauty of Colorado by drawing viewers into my images. I do this through the use of a technique known as photomerging. Some of my merged pictures consist of hundreds of individual photographs seamlessly quilted into a single panorama. The resulting prints are large and highly detailed. Another key advantage of this technique is that it permits me to achieve extreme depth of field by using multiple focus settings.The result can provide the feeling of being in the image.
My presentation covers the evolution of panoramic photography, how I merge multiple images, what I do with them with the resulting photos and where this photographic technique fits into the future of digital photography.
