Light Painting Panoramic Scenes

This technique builds upon the panoramic stitching technique discussed in the previous video.

Here are the steps and considerations for light painting panoramic scenes:

  1. Find the best room/venue angle (artemis)
  2. Tripod (ideal)
    1. Handheld for speed (mind shutter speed)
  3. Shoot vertical/portrait (ideal)
  4. Expose for desired ambiance
  5. Find existing light direction
  6. Add controlled light via grid/zoom
    1. Constant = flash at 1/16-1/32
  7. Analyze histogram/highlight alert
  8. Pan, light and shoot scene (⅓ overlap)
