From Michael about this image:



Distant Lands —
Location – Nambung National Park (The Pinnacles) in Western Australia

Panorama of 27 images at F2.8 ISO 6400 Canon 6d tokina 11-16mm – top layer of the 2 level panorama at 25s and bottom level of the panorama at 30s. Sky images using a fog filter for 10s of each exposure for the Akira Fuji effect to cause the brighter stars to bloat.

This panorama was taken July 2014 and was the first time I did this for of self portrait. I originally went to try a different self portrait using light painting (yeah – spinning around in circles and flashing myself didn’t work so well) rather than the flashlight pointing up to the sky, but realised into it that it wouldn’t work well for consistent light for the panorama. Since I do a lot of work with speedlites – I used a gary fong lightsphere and after my initial self portait image, replaced myself with a tripod/light-stand so retain consistent lighting for the rest of the panorama. The idea is was to unhinge my mind when taking the photos from having the scene to actually need to be the scene for taking every photo – I didn’t need to be there for every photo since it was a panorama. That night – I took 3-4 different panoramas doing tests.
