Panoramas: Cubism, Holgas, and DIY planets
- "Holga Cubism": Susan Bowen is a fine art photographer who creates panoramic collages using a cheap plastic Holga camera. She writes, "The long overlapping images are created by only partially advancing the film between exposures – the overlapping occurs in the film itself. It delights me how well these mostly unplanned juxtapositions capture my experience of a particular time and place and at the same time have an identity all their own." Check it out. [Via]
- Danish photographer Hans Nyberg took a series of panoramas at Photokina , including a pair showing the Adobe booth.
He reports, "For fast action panoramas we shoot 3 or 4 images with a fisheye.
Many of us use the Canon 5D today with a Nikkor 10.5mm fisheye (with an adapter).
They are stitched with software like PTGui." Here are some more.
