I am a (mostly) amateur photographer lucky enough to travel often professionally. Whenever I'm travelling I'm bringing my tripod and camera along, so I can shoot panoramas. I plan to upload most of my non-profit panos here.
I also shoot panos professionally for corporations or institutions - sadly I'm not allowed to post them here for most of them. References include Nokia and BNP Paribas.
I started taking pictures and panoramas in 2005. My first setup was a Nikon D50, the NN3 pano head and the Sigma 10-20mm zoom. I've since upgraded to a Nikon D3, the NN5 and the Nikkor 14-24 zoom, which is nowadays my main shooting gear. Update: I recently acquired a D800. The detail and resolution I get compared with my previous setting is just amazing.
In many of my panos I make a liberal use of HDR - I usually shoot several exposures (from 3 to 9), and decide at post-processing time whether or not to use HDR. Update: With the D800, dynamic range is visibly better, and I only seldom have to resort to HDR, especially as tools got better too at extracting highlights and shadows from Raw files (LR4).
Software-wise, my workflow uses DxO, Autodesk Stitcher (ex RealViz), Photomatix where applicable, and a liberal pinch of Photoshop/Lightroom. DxO was a must to remove non-linear distorsions from the images coming out of the 14-24, until the same feature became available in Lightroom. Update: I recently moved to Autopano Pro, and not looking back. The new version is just way better.
