The work speaks. After reviewing the first two takes, of the crown of the tree and then the mid section of twisting branches, we wanted to have the trunk too. Nothing says 'tree' like a tree trunk. But a 3D challange too, as now there will be a lot of foreground in the image.
A coffe cup lid wedged into the folds of the bark served as an ideal alignment point. Maybe it can be made out? And of course a person walking past in one frame fades to nothing by the next frame. Taken with a cannon eos rebel, 18mm, auto everything but flash. Why oh why was it popping up its flash for a full daylight shot like that?
TSP has a number of clutches, or groups of types. Favorite, the Hawk Watchers. A little society of folk who like watching, and are protective of, the affairs of the parks hawk, its brood, fledging, kills, calls. There is a counter contingient scornfull of this attention, who will mock a photographer intent on their urban-wild quarry, claiming to be the real wild thing in the park.
Such a one called out to me: have you found it yet? Well, there may be secrets in the tree yet to be found. A squirrel shows in one frame, but that is hardly a secret. Perhaps there is a camera hidden in the nest on the knob of one of those branches?
Hindsight, would put a surveyors post in mid ground and align to that. This because the goal is to make an integral or lenticular image from these, and it is problematic to have elements in the front of the lens, they move counter to the flow. So too with aliging to the center of the tree trunk, half is in front of the center point, half behind. Will fix in post, of course, with an offset, but better next time to center the camera on the surveyors post.
