Shooting an incredibly bright beach scene with a camera without a viewfinder is a tough thing to do, but shooting with manual exposure and focus helped. Although seeing detail in the camera’s LCD was impossible, I could see enough to make out the rough composition I needed for this panoramic.
I shot eight frames and merged them. A little extra saturation improved the colours. I used PhotoShop’s warp filter to take out the barrel distortion in the horizon: I’m sure there’s a better way, please feel free to leave a tip.
Hardware: Olympus EP-1, 17mm f/2.8
Settings: ISO 100, 1/250th @ f/16 Manual
