The panoramas are stored here on the blog. These are full spherical panos, most of them with 360 degrees of coverage and fully navigable and zoomable. Most are also HDR, which means that a single panorama requires up to eighty single shots! I don’t shoot them too often given the need for a tripod and heavy post-processing required, and the appearance of 360 degree cameras will soon make all that work obsolete.

Here is an example, shot in the Karoo, South Africa.

Taken from the deck at Fonteinskop, this is the result of eighty separate exposures, combined into a single panorama through Exposure Fusion, my new HDR replacement, and PTGui Pro, and some Photoshop tweaking of the nadir and zenith.

I normally try and take out all signs of the photographer, for instance removing the tripod when looking down, but here I followed Marie’s advice and decided to keep my shadow as it gives the scene character. Notice the lizard on the pool wall!
