Sometimes when I’m just walking on campus or at the mall or in downtown Edmonds or maybe in Seattle, I find that I take 35mm photos in my head and then stitch them together to form a collective view. My final mental photo is seamless and free of distortion – at least from my point of view. Then I move a few feet and the whole thing opens anew and my mental photo starts to really become three dimensional.
Okay, I know.
But, here’s an interesting way to create a two dimensional representation of what I’m talking about. It’s kind of a low-tech combination of our Planet Panorama Project and our Montage Project.
Here’s what you’ll need in order to complete the project:
- Panographies Project
- Panographies Tutorial (with much thanks to the folks at PhotoJojo)
- Panographies on Flickr
- Panographies by Mareen Fischinger (amazing!)
- Mareen Fischinger interview (video)
And, finally, here are two of my favorite panography photos – one is of the Catherdral of Notré Dame in Paris and the other is of Mount Rainier. Wow!
