Panoramas

I’ve been working on some panoramas lately and needed a way to share them with clients.  Gigapan.com provides an easy way to upload and share panoramic images that are far too wide to fully appreciate.

Shooting panoramic images requires a few key techniques.  Most importantly the camera MUST remain completely level if your scene has any architecture in it.  Some tripods have bubble levels, and there are even hot shoe attachable levels available for purchase.  As helpful as they can be it’s still difficult to tell if that little bubble is indeed centered.  I use the “Surface Level” app on my iPhone.  The hot shoe of any given camera is 100% level… thus placing the iPhone on this part of the camera and utilizing the app allows for extremely precise control when the camera is mounted to my Manfrotto 3 axis micro adjustable tripod head.  Maintaining level images will save a lot of unnecessary work in Photoshop later.

These images were created with the Phase One camera system, edited in Capture One Pro, and stitched seamlessly in Photoshop CS6. Ranging in size from 60-100 megapixels these panoramas provide an astounding amount of detail within the scene.  Click on the images to explore the scene full screen.
