This is a 360° view – the source images were shot on a 15mm Fisheye lens and combined using a program called Hugin. (See Method for details)

  1. 3rd August 2014 Achieved its third feature in the group Street shots

This Stereographic panorama shows Niamh, Donncha and Moya (two sisters and their brother) enjoying the six seater swing at the Pennyburn Play Trail in Derry.

It was shot as part of the World Wide Panorama project’s Family event. It is available on the WWP site in Virtual Reality form.

This swing is in one of a series of interconnected play areas along the Pennyburn play trail.

The Play Trail was created (and is operated) by a consortium of local community, local government and educational organisations with funding from several charitable trusts.

During the school day it is used by children from local schools and once the school day is over it is available to young people from the local community.

Method
This full 360° high dynamic range panorama was created by combining 27 separate photographs covering every angle and with bracketed exposures.

Those source images were shot in Raw mode on a Canon EOS 5D with a 16mm Zenitar Manual fisheye lens – mounted on the 5D via an M42-EOS adapter. They were shot in groups of three bracketed exposures (from -2 stops to +2 stops).

They were then stitched and blended together using a program called Hugin, which in turn invoked a program called Enfuse to create the High Dynamic Range effect.

    I love how one of them swings out into the sky or into the unknown. Something daring and joyful about it – wonderful!

  • Charlotte,
    Thank you. Yes it was a high energy session. Each time I photographed one of the kids swinging, they would jump down and run around to the next empty swing. By the time I got around to Niamh she had got the swing really flying! So she and the swing went all the way back and all the way forward above the supporting arch. As you say – “daring and joyful”!

    What a great subject for a polar pano this makes! And the kids swinging at various seats at the same time, it works great :)

  • Lenka, Thank you. George
