50,000 views

I joined RedBubble about 18 months ago. Today the view count on my portfolio passed through 50,000 views. Of those about 10,000 have happened over the last three months.

So this seems like a good time for a small review of some numbers.

 

Photographs

I have uploaded a total of ninety photographs in that time. Most of those have been panoramas
But I have also included quite a few flowers that I found on my way to or from shooting panoramas, or sometimes right beneath the tripod.

There have also been a few shells and the very occasional thing that was just a photograph

1,000s of Views

More than thirty of my photographs have been viewed more than 500 times.

My journal entry on my method for making Stereographic Panoramas has just reached 1000 views also. (I don’t think journal entries count towards portfolio views so that 1,000 was not included in the 50,000 views.)

    thanks George, im still working on learning hugin and trying to emulate your work little planets, hope to acheive a good result soon.

  • Mark,
    I look forward to seeing your results. There is a new release of Hugin just out a few days ago. It now has a separate lens calibration tool, which can make the first steps a bit easier as, having processed a calibration shot, (with lots of horizontal and vertical lines) you can start your first panorama stitch with Hugin already tuned to your lens/camera. It’s one less set of variables anyway. George
