    Also the photo of the day, but I wanted to share this.

    Last year, my principle approached me about using the photo on the left for our high school agenda. I was more than happy to say yes and sent him the file, all I wanted was photo credit. Walked into school to see copies of it in the hands of 900 of my closest friends.

    Very excited.
  2. Congrats! Your excitement is well justified!

    Nice work!

    How did you do that - I am assuming you used a fisheye?

    That's a great picture. It's always nice to have work that you're proud of get recognized.

    You'd be surprised how many people asked me if I rented a helicopter and shot this fisheye. They assume a bigger budget than a 15 year old I guess.

    It was a 360 degree panorama shot at night. In photoshop, I made the height equal to the width, flipped it upside down, and applied the Polar Coordinate filter. Of course, with the enormous file crashing Photoshop a few times in the process.

    Gretchen, next time they give me a shot at that helicopter, I'll be sure to stop by. Rental fees are getting cheap.
