Urbex Palace – How Not to Create a 360 Panorama

This was one of the highlights of the recent trip to Italy. I knew after seeing several images of this room that it would be awesome to create a 360 here. I wasn't going to post this image as I'm not happy with it on SO many levels, but decided in the end that it [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Royal Exchange and Bank in The City Of London

This is the image that I went out on Sunday to capture. There's not much to say about it apart from I'm very happy. It's a testament to planning really, I knew what I wanted, where to shoot and that there would be little in the way of either pedestrian or vehicular traffic at night [...]

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. [...]

Cotehele House – Ornamental Pond

Above the house is an ornamental pond, its a really nice spot in the summer with plenty of fish in the water, however they all seem to be in hiding and I didnt see any at all on this day. Maybe they were keeping warm!   I've had a few people ask how [...]

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 [...]

Crossness Pumpingstation and Panorama Heads

On Sunday Viveca and I went to Crossness Pumping Station. It was Open House London day and as we were a bit slow off the mark we hadn't booked to go anywhere. Its basically a weekend where-lots of usually closed houses and architectural oddities a that are normally closed are opened up to the public. [...]

London Rooftops – Southside

Well , Saturday night came and it was time to head to town, camera in hand. 10.30pm kick off was slightly off-putting, but well worth it. I'm quite a fan of rooftops, quiet, great views and almost certainly undisturbed away from the hustle and bustle below. My fellow explorer and I met at the location [...]

Wistman’s Wood – Seeds of Life

Due to some car issues I haven't been able to make it home to London for New Year and have been without wheels for a couple of days. Luckily one of my urbex mates was in the area so he offered to take me out to Dartmoor for something a bit different. A trip to Wistman's Wood. the weather was [...]
