Mimicking Medium Format

I’ve been trying to be a little more creative with the photos that I take. One method of photography that I haven’t tried is stitching together some photos to mimic the medium format look. I mean, a medium format sensor is just a full frame sensor with a larger surface area, right? So by stitching together multiple images in photo processing software like Adobe Lightroom or Adobe Photoshop, you can effectively turn your camera into a medium format camera.

I have yet to truly utilize this method yet into a photoset. I was able to take one photo of it of this house seen below. Overall, I absolutely love the amount of detail that is in the photo. You can zoom in to your heart’s content with the amount of pixels that can be included through this method. Combine that with a sharp lens like the Sony 85mm lens and its crispy goodness.

This is something I will continue to do. I may even have some photo projects in mind that utilize the panorama/stitching tool found in Lightroom. Too bad websites, like Instagram, can’t fully show the image to its maximum resolution. I will definitely continue to try this method out, and let you all know what I get from it. What do you think?


I just got my hands on a 28mm lens for my film camera, so I am excited to be using that. Let me know if you would like to see some photos from that! I can shoot color or black and white. Don’t forget to check out my Instagram: @ajarmenta_.
