The Corridor


Good morning,

Yesterday morning Zach and I drove up to Nolde Forest just outside of Reading, PA. We were goal oriented and was looking for the shot of what the locals call “The Corridor”. Upon arrival and reviewing the map we realized that Nolde Forest was much bigger than we had originally thought. So after about 40 minutes of hiking through the forest without any luck we headed back to the car and decided to have breakfast at a great little diner just down the road. I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, that Zach is very resourceful and during breakfast one of his connections told him how to reach the corridor. So with a full stomach and a renewed sense of direction (lol) we headed back to the park and again started our search. After a little trial and error interpreting our directions we were rewarded with this scene!

Back Roads of West Virginia


Happy Monday morning Everyone,
While working closely with one of our clients at our last West Virginia winter workshop on how to shoot panoramic images and the correct use of our Really Right Stuff Pro Omni Pivot package Pano kit, I captured this image.
The image itself represents some of the amazing finds that you come across while driving the back roads of West Virginia!

This is 9 images shot in a vertical position and stitched with Autopano Giga. I like to use my Tamron 70-200mm for all of my panoramic images. It not only captures outstanding detail the color purity is amazing without shifts between frames.

Best of Light,
