Marina Grande, Sorrento, Italy – this is an assembly of 12 images. This is how I shoot these types of images: I focus, then turn off the auto focus feature, then determine the average exposure I need to get a good exposure “Balance”. The goal in exposure is to have enough range without blowing out the highlights but still have some shadow detail. I then take a photo of my foot, this way I know where a sequence is starting, then take the photos, being careful to overlap each photo by about one third. Then I shoot my foot again showing where the sequence stops. I then open the files, adjust the color balance, exposure, sharpness etc. and assemble them in Photoshop. After they were assembled into one seamless image, I added sharpness to the clouds so they would show greater detail.
