+ A Taste of Summer +
Lately we’ve been spoiled with beautiful weather throughout San Diego. It’s been 80° and crystal clear for the past few days, giving us a small taste of summer. I was lucky enough to have some free time to take advantage of the gorgeous weather we’ve been having. Yesterday I spent the day surfing and shooting some photos all over San Diego. I’ve been wanting to shoot some panoramas to have printed for my new apartment. It was a beautiful day but I was a bit unprepared to shoot panoramas and I totally forgot to bring a tripod along with me…both of these shots were taken handheld with my 50D with a 50mm f/1.4 lens attached. I am extremely happy with the results even though I didn’t use a tripod. It took some tweaking in CS3 to get everything to line up correctly, but they ended up coming out perfect. I am going to print both of these about 5 feet long to hang in my house…I can’t wait to see how they come out!
