— Panoramas —

Extraordinary exposures are shown here. Extraordinary in the sense of aspect ratio and dynamic range — i.e. the technology used. This is no container for snapshots. Gathering the photographs and the image processing afterwards were very time consuming.

This is strictly photography centered. There is more on the topic of panoramas in the Raytracing section, which is about computer graphics. However, the challenges that have to be overcome are in wide parts the same and getting some additional information might be helpful.

Short introduction into the topic of panorama photography.

How to photograph for a panorama.

Combine (Stitch)
Stitching the individual photographs and create a QTVR or Flash movie.

Evil Flaws
Mistakes can happen if we are not careful, and flaws can also creep in.

Equipment & Nadir
Equipment needed for spherical panoramas and some considerations about the nadir.

Some cylindrical and spherical panoramas in the landscape and portrait aspect ratio.
