DVCC & N4C August Competition Results

Before we get to the results, let’s catch up on some news. First, I’m largely taking over the newsletter editor functions from Cathy Cooper though she’ll still contribute articles and answer my multitude of questions as I get used to WordPress. If you have any questions, catch any mistakes, or have an idea for an article, let me know at dvccnewsletter@gmail.com or at a meeting. I look forward to working with all of you!

Panoramic Images
Alan Moore gave a wonderful presentation at our 9/11 meeting, showing us the ins-and-outs of creating beautiful panoramas. Especially helpful were the list of equipment and the Photoshop instructions that simplified a complicated process.  His powerpoint presentation and list of steps to produce a panorama in Photoshop are on the DVCC RESOURCES page.
Here’s the raw panorama after all the separate images were merged:

And here’s the final image after Alan applied the “content aware” fill function of Photoshop:
