Old Fremantle Power Station


This is my first completed pano. I’ve finally entered the big WIDE world of panoramic photography. I was scared of the whole stitching thing for a long time. I’m slowly getting the gist of it all but I think it’s going to take a little getting used to.

I’m working on a site in Freo at the moment and we started a little later than usual during the week. The late start gave me time to get down and shoot this before work on Thursday.

    I really like it! The low saturation is great!
    Pano’s are a lot of fun! It’s just picturing the stitched image in your mind before you take your shots. It takes practice.

    Cheers Dylan. Yeah I’ll have to start training myself to recognise situations where a pano will work well.

    Thank you Jayne. It’s a good spot to wonder around bit creepy though. I’ve met a few freaks there.
    Yeah I have got a pano head. I didn’t really shoot any panos prior to getting a pano head. I probably should have though.

  11. Nice shot. It’s somewhere I have been meaning to go and get a few shots of before it gets developed.
