As I said the introduction, let’s see my workflow step by step.
Day 1 start with, of course, capturing images.
Location: Yodogawa, Osaka

The number of capture images: 14
Total capture time: 2,520 seconds (42 minutes)※

end at : 11:02
Lens: pc-e 24mm

Some behind(dumb) stories you may laugh
Actually this was the second try here at the exact same location.
The first try I stupidly took with JPEG. Why?
The day before I had a basic maintenance and sensor cleaning at Nikon Osaka, and they changed my usual setting to default!
I did not check well before the shoot, so the captured images were all JPEG…….
I did not noticed until I started to develop at Lightroom.
I was pretty shocked because the weather condition was pretty good.
Here is the jpeg panorama I made. This would be a great B&W as the cloudy weather and flat light was so nice.
I started shooting at 8:00 there. But the capture data said 10:04. why ?
Because I totally forgot about for setting my※nodal rail on my tripod.
※nodal rail is for setting non-parallax point for panorama shooting.
If you’re not familiar with it google “nodal point” or “non parallax point”
I did not notice until I captured the last images. As I know the images without parallax point did not work well, so I tried again. that was just before 10:00.
I already 19 (180 sec.) long exposure until then (including alternates)
The good thing was the light was pretty stable, so I could get constant images.
So, next step, let’s merge to single panorama from captured images.
See you next post at Day 2.
