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.

    Thanks for mentioning the IVRPA Photokina project. Hans collaborated with a number of other photographers, including Carlos Chegado, Matthias Taugwalder Jook Leung and others.
    The IVRPA Photokina website contains information about the equipment and software used for each panorama, and even lets you browse the panoramas by equipment used.
