Staples Center Panorama

Newer Older

Home of the L.A. Lakers and four more Los Angeles sports teams. This was on the evening of a Depeche Mode concert.

In the background you see the Convention Center hosting the Siggraph Convention. In 1995 some French guys showed here the immersive imaging technique of stitching together a collection of photos to a single panorama for the very first time to the puplic. Just type 'panorama' in the search tab and see how people adopted this technique!

Panorama with two rows of 8 images, the first panorama i ever stitched. The post pro is still a bit sloppy.

    An inspiration...literally! I'll be at Staples tomorrow afternoon for the last time this season and will definitely give this a shot (no pun intended).

    I'm pretty sure that from the 3rd-level patio there's a clear view of the new Nokia L.A. Live complex (across the street on the back side of Staples) so I'll try that too.

    I wouldn't have thought to take as many as 8 shots across; I think all my panoramas will be better now. Thanks!
