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.

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.
