Christmas Dinner with Clones

    Newer Older

    UPDATE 2008/03/03: Hello Apple list enthusiasts!

    Equirectangular panorama, as in this set, except this time there is a twist... the image is still twice as large as it is tall, and if you look at it in the immersive version you will only find one strange looking point. But if you turn 360° in the immersive version, you will find that the people have changed expressions! This is still the magic of conformal transformations.

    Nikon D200, 10.5mm,nodal ninja 3: 14 shots (12 portrait, 1 zenith and 1 hand-held nadir). Stitched with hugin and enblend (view the EXIF data).

    Enjoy the interactive viewer (needs Shockwave).

      very interesting.

      That is hilarious Seb! Somehow it is a 720 degree panorama. Great work. Did you know this would work when you started out, or was it an experiment? Did Huggin still think it was a 360?

      Josh: it is indeed a 720° panorama (see the tags...), and yes I knew where I wanted to go when I started shooting, and no hugin was never fooled, I had to do some work after the stitching.

      Cher Seb, bien que récemment inscrit, cela fait un peu plus d'un mois que j'ai rencontré tes images sur Flickr. J'y ai déjà trouvé de l'inspiration en regardant tes "petites planètes", en attendant de m'essayer aux spirales... Je me demandais ce que tu pourrais bien imaginer avec les Panoramas... (au bout d'un moment, on sait ce que c'est, un panorama !). C'est maintenant chose faite. Vivement ta prochaine invention !
      Nota: Une des choses qui m'impressionne le plus dans ton travail, c'est comment tu arrives à faire participer ta famille. Ca a l'air de les amuser autant que toi et c'est fabuleux...

      This is amazing. Your creative use of panoramic photography is a blessing to everyone who see it. I'm amazed at your concepts and beautiful application of them!

      Hey Seb,
      Great pano - you have to go around a couple times and do some double takes - hence 720 :-) Well done - it adds another dimension to immersive panoramas.

      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Nodal Ninja, and we'd love to have your photo added to the group.

      Thats crazy! How have you got the Equirectangular to have a 2:1 size, but not have the people squashed, because surely it should be a 4:1, being 720:180?

      So impressed, the immersive view freaks you out!

      Loving all of your work, your a real panorama legend! =D

      great idea! :)

      How did you get 720 degree to fit in a 2/1 porportion?

      A very creative way to take both a panorama and a Christmas dinner photo!
