How did he do that?

Looks like we have a few photographers and artists in our midst so here's a place to talk about all photography, art, and related subjects.

How did he do that?

Dennis Gliksman's panoramic photo of Jean le Camm's boat Bonduelle taken in 2004. The ultimate spherical lens? Whatever equipment he used, it was on the deck of a boat out on the water...

No. A panoramic tripod head. But you still have a few challenges:

- moving the tripod to one side to photograph the deck beneath where it wsa, and get that sequence of images registered correctly with the others.

- choosing an exposure setting that suits all the angles

- stitching it all together

Anyone tried anything more complex than simple stitching of a horizontal pan of a landscape, which is not that trivial?

Sorry, I should have pointed out that you need Quicktime to view it...

I didn't see the image because I don't use Quicktime - too pervasive, but I have tried a couple of stitched panoramas. Not that easy - especially if you're stitching by hand.
One stupid mistake I did make: don't use a polarising filter on panoramics, or even wide angle shots. Doh!
Don't forget, there's much going on at the main site: http://www.britishexpat.com

You might find it worth the 70Mbytes of Quicktime just to see this, even if you uninstall it afterwads. It's a spherical stitch-up, and perspective changes smoothly as you look around. I'll see if I can take a few Fireshot screen captures.
