A friend of mine emailed me a link to some free software called HUGIN that connects multiple photos into a single panoramic image. When evening arrived, I decided to test it out. I’m using a Canon PowerShot SD 800 IS. My tripod is (sadly) 3 stacked business cards.
My first stitch attempt used 5 images. There is blurring on the left and darkness on the right.
Then I made a version using just the center 3 images. Somehow the sun got brighter. In this version, you can see people at the playground which is the bottom right of the image.
I plan to make more panoramic shots this year. Who knows, I may even splurge and spend $15 on a tripod. 🙂
