Low light panoramic photography

A fellow photo blogger, Abe Pacana, very kindly paid a visit to my blog and left an encouraging comment. Of course, I immediately clicked on his link to see what he gets up to. It appears he also has a bit of a thing for low light photography, landscape photography in particular … and panoramics.

His pics are really great. So great, in fact, that was inspired to head out with my tripod for a half hour or so before cooking dinner.

Here is this evening’s effort (click on the image to enlarge).

ISO 100, Aperture f/4, Shutter speed 1.4 seconds

This pic has an aperture of f/4, and was from the first set of pics I took – f/4 simply to get the quickest shutter speed, and fire off a few test shots. The other sets were shot at f/18, with a 30 second shutter speed – which is more in keeping with what I usually do.

The smaller aperture and longer shutter speed creates this kind of effect:

ISO 100, Aperture f/18, Shutter speed 30″
