With all my 5×4 negs in the lab every minute feels like an hour until they arrive safely back and get scanned. Some of the vistas on the project were impossibly wide which lent well to panoramic images shot on digital. Each of my panoramas you may see on the blog consist of 28-36 stitched frames shot on a 35mm prime lens. Attached below is a panoramic shot in the Sloy system showing the frozen holding lake between Upper Shira Dam (on the right of frame) and Lower Shira Dam (on the left of frame). Images such as this help feed my ideas for large format images and rarely get printed as the image size is over 4m long. You can click the image to open a zoomable page to see the full detail.
