Welcome. Putting together these immersive pictures is a hobby among other things I do. My main motivation for doing these comes from my desire for general self-improvement.
For example the very first panorama available here dates back to February of 2011, since then I have become familiar with two camera systems, and more importantly their limitations.
Shooting these images largely meant learning how to exceed the technical capabilities of ones gear, firstly how to expand the viewing angle of any lens, how to achieve better and more consistent colours and tones, how to capture clearer details in shadows and highlights for a higher dynamic range, all the while optimizing the workflow with almost every batch for a more efficient result.
I have challenged myself to shoot in multiple environments, all year round, indoors, outdoors, at night etc. Feel free to browse through these.
