One of my favorite expressions with digital photography is "pixels are free." With no cost, photographers should enjoy complete freedom to experiment and play. If you have an idea for a shot, go for it. If it works, great. Take what you did and make it a part of your photography.
If it does not work out, no big deal. But use the results as a completely free learning experience. Go to school and figure out what was the issue/s. Can you make a small adjustment or do you need to go back to the drawing board and plan again.
I recently found myself in a situation where I honestly did not know how the results would turn out. I wanted to shoot a series of images for a landscape panorama in rapidly falling light levels. I had the Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L on my 5K Mk II; a combination not often used for panoramas. To make matters worse I was on the back of a moving boat. Not only was it moving forward and slowly rocking side to side but we were in a regular ocean swell so we were slowly heaving (up and down.)
Not the best situation but pixels are free so I went for it. The results from the 42 shots are shown below.
This is the panorama after the stitching process. If you follow the bottom (or top) you will notice a nice sine wave pattern. That is the boat going up and down with the ocean swell. My camera support was rock solid (RRS TVC-33 and PG-02) but the boat was out of my control.
At this point I had a nicely stitched panorama even though it is somewhat ugly in terms of how everything lined up. But it worked and did not cost a thing.
After a little cleanup, I had a usable, huge panorama to optimize. For a free experiment, I will take it.
