Panoramic Images and Golf Courses - An Exciting Creative Opportunity
Not every golf course offers an opportunity for a dramatic panoramic image, but when one does, this is a powerful new tool in the golf course photographer’s kit.
Horseshoe Bend CC, Roswell, Georgia Last week, at Crooked Stick Golf Club, a highly-regarded Pete Dye golf course in Carmel, Indiana, I had yet another wonderful opportunity for a panoramic. This time I used a new toy I recently acquired to enable even larger panoramics... an L-Bracket that allows me to shoot vertically and make full use of my camera's 24" width as the height of the final image. The image below is 2 feet high by 10 feet wide, native size. It was taken from the 10th tee and provides a gorgeous view of the back nine. Note the life-sized bronze sculpture of Pete and Alice Dye that greets golfers walking off the 18th green.
Every time I step onto a golf course with my camera, I'm working to create the best images I've ever done, and panoramic shooting is one way to do just that. At least that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
