Aloha community,

Today, I'm sharing a few images that I'm rather proud of, created by a technique I've been practicing for several months now.  Each image you see is comprised of anywhere between 10 to 25 individual photos, merged together like a jigsaw puzzle.  In doing this, I'm able to create high resolution images of panoramic scenes that would not fit in a single exposure.  These will print clearly up to around 5-8ft on the long edge, depending upon the image. They vary between 20-100mp.

All shot on a Phantom 4

Mahalo for viewing, looking forward to feedback and constructive critique!

Great shots...

What was the wind like during these shots and how long did it take you to get all the needed shots?

It is impressive how the drone is stable 

Mahalo Gabriel!  The wind was pretty low, barely more than a few mph really.  But I'll say this, I've flown this little Phantom 4 in winds exceeding 30mph steady, gusting as high as 40mph, and the footage was solid.  Still photos were good too, so long as I had a high shutter speed.  I'm certain it would be next to impossible to shoot a merge pano under those conditions, but now I wanna try it.

This makes me miss Maui! I've been three times and it's my favorite vacation spot. The diving is fantastic, too. I've never been there with a drone, though. I guess it's time to start planning!

Edit: Geez, man! Just clicked through to your website. You could single-handedly OWN the postcard market, LOL!

Postcards?  What are these postcards you speak of?  There's a market for that?

That is super kind of you to say, big Mahalo!  When you come to Maui again, please look me up and let's connect.  I know some sweet spots for drone work that the blue book will never give up.

Absolutely! I hope to get out there again in the next year or two.

How long did you start merging photos and making it into a large beautiful photo? There must have been difficult situations when you take these photos

I've been making these large photo merge pieces for a little over a year now.  Sometimes the task is pretty straightforward and takes more time than effort.  Other times, it takes both time AND lots of effort to get a cleanly merged image.  The merging itself is only one part of the process.  I still have to repair merge artifacts and color variances in the final image before rendering.
