Tree in the way? No problem!

Tree in the way? No problem!

One of the cool things about panoramic stitching in Windows Live Photo Gallery is that you can use it to shoot around foreground objects.

Here’s an example from the Woodland Park Zoo where branches (and a fence) prevented me from getting a clean shot of two Zebras in a field. However, by repositioning my body for the source images (to shoot around branches) and later stitching the images together, I was able to easily get the image I wanted.

Here’s a diagram of how I shot through the trees:

Here are the three source images with the tree branches highlighted:

Here is the resulting stitch image. No branches! :)
