57055Questions shooting panos in low light & busy environments
- Oct 25, 2013
I've been shooting a lot more panos in spaces with low light and lots of people moving about, such as events, art exhibits, parties, etc..
So I'm forced to open up my lens quite a bit from my preferred f8.
I use a Canon 7D with a Sigma 8mm 3.5 and a mono-pod.
I've taped my lens to the point I feel is the best focus at f8 - a little past infinity.
But do I need to adjust the Sigma's focus when opening it up to lower f-stops? Would it even make a difference? I like to get objects of interest as close as possible to the camera because such a wide lens makes everything appear so distant.
Another question is using a flash in such environments. Are there any specific techniques (or preferred equipment ) to using a flash when shooting a pano? Currently all I have is my camera's built in flash, which leaves an ugly shadow in the bottom middle portion of the image when using the Sigma 8mm. Would a speed light make a difference or still cause the same type of shadowing when used with the Sigma 8mm?
