Red Square Apartments '80s Gentrification

Here, I'm using a "Hockneyesque" pano method of shooting with a rotating camera and hand-stitching (which I got from Cam B) to depict this example of a previous generation's gentrification of the LES, Manhattan.

 

Later, I made a smoothly blended version using panorama stitching software.

    I really like this one!
    What is a "Hockneyesque" pano method of shooting with a rotating camera? I know David Hockney offcoarse, but you need a special program to stitch this, I think.
    Wonderfull!

    @John Melskens
    Hockneyesque, because there's a Flickr group by that name and because whenever I make a panorama by hand, where you see the separate photos piled together in collage, somebody says it looks like Hockney (referring to his "cubist" collages done with photo prints).

    Rotating camera is just shooting each shot with the camera turned in odd random angles.

    I put all the shots together in Photoshop, by hand, pasting them all on one canvas one by one. Cam B made one like that way and I like it, tried it myself.

    Thanks for coming over to ask and to compliment. You're welcome to comment on any of mine anytime.

    @ p0psharlow - thank you for this explanation. I like this kind of pasting the best, so I am going to try out this myself in Photoshop. (Of which I don't know all the possibillieties yet....) Photography becomes fun again when trying new techniques. Thank you.

    My god, bro, this is a mindblowing collage... the jagged edges are KING, and it's just beautiful... would a full size print have straight or jagged edges???
  • Stephen L Harlow PRO 7y

    @dorisdaynyc - the file has the black rectangle background as you see here, but a print could be made with the black cut off, leaving the jagged edge of the pano. tricky to mount or frame as a standard gallery product, but nice to wheatpaste. i'm glad you're looking at my stuff.
