November 2018 Meeting (Note DATE Change)

Taking the Mystery Out of Panoramas


November 14, 2018 at 07:15 PM


Confused about what a parallax (nodal) point is and why it’s important in shooting a panoramic setup?  Steve will show you how to calculate it for your lens, what type of tripod mounts are needed and what settings to shoot.  He’ll cover various setup situations and then how to stitch and correct your files in Photoshop and Lightroom. 

***PLEASE NOTE***  Our November Meeting is ONE WEEK EARLIER than usual. Due to the Thanksgiving holiday we will be meeting on the SECOND WEDNESDAY in November 2018.

Please be aware that there will be a $5 per person charge for guests and non-members to attend this meeting.  As always, GRCC members attend free.

Steve Loveless Biography


SteveLoveless-web.jpg#asset:2575Steve grew up in Traverse City, Michigan as your program director’s kid brother and learned basic photography processes from his father. He graduated from Northern Michigan University with a BFA in Cinematography but continued working in still photography.  He has had images published in many regional publications, including the Traverse Magazine, the Benzie County Visitor’s Guide, and Shutterbug’s monthly “Picture This” assignment. The bulk of Steve’s work is outdoor/landscape based but he also does product, architectural, restoration, post production and portrait work. 

Steve has also had works accepted into shows at museums and art centers. In 2015, Steve, together with his wife Ann, won the Public’s Choice award in ArtPrize 7 for their joint piece “Northwood Awakening,” a 25 foot wide PhotoFiber piece which began as a photograph on the left and gradually became fiber art on the right, based on one of Steve’s multi-stitch panorama images.
