Join me at the Juried Invitational Exhibition…

I am pleased to have had one of my panoramas selected, from over 46,000 works of art, to exhibit in SoJie 7. SoJie 7 takes its name from the Solo Exhibition group’s Juried Invitational Exhibition. This month is only the 7th one, ever, and 73 other artists, besides myself, are represented.

Winners of the invitational will be announced on September 29th, when a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place will be awarded in three categories: digital art, photography, and traditional art.

Non members, as well as members, ARE welcome to view all of the work nominated. So I hope that you will click the show…

Creating a Stereographic Panorama - the Basic Idea

I have a portfolio of panoramic images here.
               

Most of them are 360° “Stereographic” panoramas, such as the examples above. These are the sort that take a wide view and wrap the horizon around until it meets itself – resulting in an image that looks like a “little planet”.

Shooting the Source Images
Typically I create these panoramas by combining 24 separate digital photographs, covering every angle and with bracketed exposures. I shoot the source images on a Canon EOS 5d with a 16mm fisheye lens producing a set of 12 Mega-pixel images, in Raw mode. I have the camera mounted in portrait-mode, (that is – image taller than it is wide) attached to the tripod via a specialist pano…

The World Wide Panorama Project (updated May 2010)

Each quarter the World Wide Panorama Project (WWPP) creates a snapshot of the world in panoramic form, over a particular week.
 
It started in 2004 as a voluntary effort hosted by the Geography Department of Berkley College, University of California. About a year or so ago it spun off as an independent website administered by a not-for-profit company.
 
The aim of WWPP is simply to promote and publicise panoramic photography. It does so by organising an event, once every three months in which photographers are invited to each submit a single panoramic image. Each panorama has to have been taken over a particular weekend, and fit within that quarter’s theme.
 
Within a week or so of the shooting weekend, the panoramas are assembled onto the website creating a record…

Very Ireland - panoramic prints of Ireland

Hello folks,

I am new to RedBubble I have uploaded my first two photographs today. They are both square-format 360° panoramic prints from my home town, Derry.

One from the city “Hand across the Divide” is a panorama of a well known local piece of public art by Maurice Harron.

The other “Ness Glen” was taken in a country park a few miles out of town.

Originally my images were used to create immersive, virtual reality, panoramas. I have a lot in that format on my Very Derry website.

Over the last year I have been experimenting with methods of making flat printable versions. I have had a couple of (off-line) exhibitions at which people have been very positive. So now I am looking at ways of making the prints available online.

I will gradually upload a small…
