NEW YORK NEW YORK – We found ourselves on a roof terrace of a neigboring building looking at an apartment with Laura and Alexander. The situation begged for a very wide lens but I only had my 35mm Summicron Asph lens with me. I don’t use zoom lenses on my Leica, so I take multiple frames and stitch as a substitute for zooming to wider angles. The first image is two frames stitched and the second is nine frames stitched. For complex projects like this I find that a piece of specialized stitching software called PtGui is better that Photoshop because it provides for direct control over perspective distortion.

On this day last year: Christmas party at the Knick.
