Evening in Middletown
Sunset in Middletown, Rhode Island at a friends house. This is and experiment in shooting multiple images in low light and blending the exposures to create one image.
Back

This picture was taken on June 4th, 2004 with a Nikon D70 camera sporting an Sigma 8mm fish eye lens, on my home made tripod head. A total of twelve images were taken, three exposures of each of four around. I faked the top and bottom shots as I was being eaten by mosquitos when I was shooting. Using Photomatix beta software the images were then blended. They were then 'defished' using DeFish software created by Ken Turkowski. Back in Photoshop I manually stitched the four images together. Then using Cubic Converter I converted the assembled panorama in to a cubic format and exported the top and bottom to be finalized once again in Photoshop. I then re-import the top and bottom into Cubic Converter to assemble the final QuickTime VR. Then into QuickTime Pro to embed copyright and other information about the file.
