London City Panorama

With the sun setting later and later as summer draws closer its becoming increasing frustrating to get out and do some night shooting. I ventured out to The City last night to have a play and shoot a few panoramas and have a bit of an explore without the hustle and bustle of all the [...]

UE Palace – The Acid House

Here's one of the most colourful rooms in the UE Palace, its totally bonkers as I am sure you can see. I have no idea what the designers were on when they came up with this Moorish influenced room, but I'll have a pint of whatever they were on please! The image was quite hard [...]

Balestrino Abandoned Village – External

As you can see the weather was lovely in the village, blue skies and sun for a change. It was great to wander around without the worry of being quiet, getting caught or falling down any holes.   The village is mostly intact, nothing remains in the houses although the spaces are quite [...]

Balestrino – Abandoned Church

The third day of our trip was a treat - an abandoned village on the side of a hill. After a little confusion we found the right place. RoamnyWG and I had different locations in mind, I'd found a different village to him! The weather was great, lovely and sunny and the small village contained [...]

PTGui Tutorial

I've had a few people ask how I line up my panoramas, so I thought it was about time I shared my processing technique. Currently I am using PTGui, its a pretty cool program and works really well. The only proviso is that you have a panoramic head that is correctly aligned for your camera [...]

Cotehele Quay

Cotehele Quay is on the River Tamar and was once a busy transit and freight quay, market gardeners sent their wares to Plymouth from here and no doubt the local mines will have also used it. The quay and area in general is dotted with lime kilns. The lime would have been used in agriculture [...]

Notre Dame de Lourdes – Casablanca

Back to Morocco and a rather nice 360. I specifically went to the cathedral to capture this image. I'd seen interiors shots of the cathedral before but not a full 360 and certainly not an HDR 360. As you can hopefully see its a pretty impressive structure from the inside, outside is rather more mundane. [...]

Casablanca – Hassan II Mosque

I've been a bit lazy and taken the info below from Wikipedia, but suffice is to say the mosque is a sight to behold - massive and intricate, built in only six years, it stands on reclaimed land, King Hassan declared that the throne of Allah was on water and therefore that is where the [...]

Panorama – Southbank from Northbank

This week I went out for a bit of a photo walk along the Thames after work. I'd been finishing later than usual the week before and had noticed how nice the light was just before sundown so I endeavoured to take advantage of this. This is another set of HDR images, the first that [...]
