Hi, nor do I Jonathan as I have forgotten what caused me to asked it in that way!! You took multiple shots and merged them. Over what sort of timescale and was the uav holding the exact same relative position for the duration? Better??

 

I'm just glad to know that I'm not the only one who mis-places my words from time to time!

As for the shoot, the drone was in one position for the entirety of it, only adjusting yaw & camera angle (up/down) to collect the individual shots of the entire scene.  I have done some where it required moving the drone, such as a top-down view of a large property, too big to fit in a single capture.  In this case, I move the drone around the property to capture the straight-down images, then merge into one.

Here's a sample...

Thanks for the clear explanation. One last question: did you do it all in one flight?

It's a fascinating technique for me and the results are stunning.  

 

I often make several attempts in one flight, trying different perspectives and compositions for the entire scene.  Doesn't take too long once you get the hang of it.  You can also do this with a hand-held camera.  In fact, I did one with my iPhone 7 Plus on the big island, making a super pano of the crater on Kilauea.  If you shoot via Lightroom Mobile, you can shoot RAW on your smartphone :)

Thanks Jonathan, that is really helpful, and definitely something I'm going to have a go at doing in the mountains in a few weeks time - hand-held camera. I've always preferred to shoot in RAW too but have never used Lightroom so perhaps now is the perfect time to start with it O.o

I think you'll enjoy using LR mobile.  Pretty powerful lil app!  Only gripe I have is no watermark feature :( 

Looking forward to seeing what you create!
