360 Degree Panoramas, Gigapixels Little Planets & More.
These are the types of images you will find on my website. My primary business is in selling the Nodal Ninja panoramic equipment so I get to play with all the latest toys. The 360 degree panoramas, little planets as well as gigapixel images, are primarily shot for fun as well as to test the newest equipment. Because the majority of my work is without commercial intent I don't spend heaps of time tweaking every image to absolutely perfection. A quote from T.H. White “If people reach perfection they vanish, you know.” That said I don't want to vanish so I'm happy being perfectly imperfect.

Our panorama website is slowly evovling so please make sure to revist for new and updated panoramas. We will also working to make this site more friendly for Our panorama website is slowly evovling so please make sure to revisit for new and updated panoramas.

360 Degree Panoramas
Most of the work displayed on my website are 360° panoramas (aka full spherical panoramas). These images are stitched to form an equirectangular (equi) image. Thiese equi's can then be displayed as clickable images that bring up the full interactive panorama.Viewer can be Quick Time (.mov) Flash (.swf) or more the more current standard HTML5. These interactive panoramas can be rotated left or right up or down and even zoomed in. It's literally a Virtual Reality experience.
Gigapixel Images
Patience patience and patience - these are the 3 most important attributes needed to shoot gigapixel images. A gigapixel image is a composite of many images which are stitched to together to form a larger overall image. Also known as mosaics or composite images if the end product is over 1 gigabyte is in size they are termed "gigapixel images" can grow to be very large.Some of my gigapixel images consist of more than a thousand individual photographs.
Little Planets and More
One of the cool tricks you can do after you've have a 360 x 180 degree equirectangular image is to build a "Little Planet". This is a method whereby the image is distorted (basically wrapping it around itself) to form what looks like a "Little Planet". A bit more work is involved during post production but the end result can be quit unique. The Little Planet above for instance is actually the Sydney Opera House and Darling Harbour. In addition I'll share some general photography and creative images..
