Kittanning Panoramic Photo

2021 Update from Carl: I’ve decided to make this photo available framed or unframed, your choice. Until the e-commerce pages are set up, you can call my cell phone and ask for pricing. I am willing to barter, set up a licensing agreement, or engage in profit-sharing (fundraising) with the right person(s) or nonprofit group.

Posted by Carl:  This photo was taken in 1997 when I was brand-new in Kittanning.  I had a decent digital camera for its time, an Epson PC-10, now a relic up on a shelf somewhere.  Don Toy of Toy Bros Photography printed me two, maybe three copies, then asked me how I shot this picture which was 7 1/4″ tall x 20″ wide.  To the best of my knowledge, panorama photography had not yet been invented!

I remember smiling just a little bit as I reenacted my photo shoot.  Holding my Epson camera up nearly at eye level, I said “click” while my right index finger pretended it was taking a picture, rotated about 10 degrees left, “click”, rotated again, “click”, and my last 10 degrees of rotation and click included the bridge.  There’s a bit more to it that that, you can ask me in person.
