360° Panorama of our Townchurch

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by misupix, Aug 6, 2008.

  1. I'm into Panoramas right now. Here's a first humble try to capture our little Townchurch.

    This is only a very small jpg of the pano.

    And here's the QuicktimeVR Movie where you'll see the whole experience.

    You'll need Quicktime. And BTW. click your mouse to look around....

    I've rendered it out of 3 rows of 16 pics each, taken with a 12mm DX Tokina with a homemade Panohead.

    Braketed each shot and done a HDR to get this outcome...:redface:


    Feedback and Commets very welcome!​

    P.S. I can't access your Quicktime VR using the QT Viewer on my Vista 64 bit system.

    Nice - how did you get both sides of the church lit evenly?

    This is a stunning shot - I really like it, and the colors are brillant!! I love the symmetry of the benches on either side of the aisle leading towards the altar.

    Well done!

    beautiful pano! i use ptgui and it's just great at making those stitch lines disappear
     
  15. absolutely awesome, nice stitch and movie - decrease the saturation in the red channel a little and it would be perfect. ptgui sure has improved over the years.

    Awesome Pano Michael, but the pics you post are always awesome.
     
  17. Now that is a lot of work you put into this picture! Very nice result! Can you explain what your homemade panohead is about? Leveling?
     
  18. gorgeous church

    thanks, michael
     
  19. It's about turning the Camera + Lens exactely around the nodal point.

    Here are some pictures of the setup:

  20. I see. More hardware than I expected. :eek:
    How do you determine that modal point? I fear it's dependant on the focal length, so varies with zooms lenses - can it be measured easily or do I better google for some database if I ever want to do panos more professional than those ad-hoc ones I already did in the past?
