Beautiful Sunday today, great skies and a great place to be shooting at, Chinese Garden. This is dedicated to the people at Chinese Garden who saw me and must be thinking why is this crazy chinese guy photographer taking photos while turning around his tripod in circles and even tilted his camera to take photo of the floor and sky, i mean, i know the sky is blue and nice but the floor?! haha
Vivocity today again. main entrance as the last time there when taking the rooftop, the front fountain was under maintenance. Today, all’s up and really sunny!
I actually took another set of the Fuk Tai Chi Museum as I noticed that when it came to the shot with PWC building etc in view, the shots will of course, be overexposed and so the idea is to merge and use this other sets of photos that has the same ISO, Aperture but different Shutter speed. This set is shot at 1/20 secs merged with the 0.3 secs shots thus the inside of the Museum looks clear (0.3) and so does the outside (1/20) with the outside buildings and details of the Museum’s roof viewable. The above is the first try. It’s done using Masking in Photoshop CS2.

Nope, I did not change a camera (yet!), this is taken in Tungsten White Balance, makes the places look “cooler”. Taken yesterday but only managed to have time to put it together and the nadir is really hard for this one.

Just addiction…made a kitchen 360 one. Next stop, the rest of the house? Maybe…haha
On my way back after Vivocity, passed this park, had my stuffs so why not. I truely know now that even with a perfect Equirectangular image, exporting using Pano2QTVR can still give tons of error with grey images or odd colored tiles.

yep, 3 Pano attempts and all doing 360 doesn’t seem to be working fine. More tweaking later but here’s a 180 pano, eh… I mean 3 x 180 panos.
i think i got it right at last. +40 degrees up and -30 degrees below shots with 30 degrees per row of shots giving me altogether 24 photos plus 1 x zenith and 1 x nadir, total 26 shots and i got this! Quite many photos to take to have this but trying with 8 shots which is equvilent to 45 degrees per shot for 2 rows (+45 and -30) totally 14 (6 x 2 + 1 zenith and 1 nadir) leaves me with a lot of work in PTGui later setting control points after control points…
With a Proper NADIR, well sort of but manage to figure out how to do it although not nicely. Leaving the zenith to work out. Hopefully got time later this evening…
Office 360. Still figuring out the nadir image, removal of the tripod from the image and the exact degrees of the top zenith image. Anyway, meantime, i am enjoying this already…
Not full screen mastered yet since it defeat the purpose still. Also regenerating the file to a bigger resolution will make the wrapping kuku somehow. Figure figure figure out why later.
Remastered to a higher resolution and made full screen, the way it’s meant to be seen! Click on top image to see the full screen version.
Taken this afternoon, took a day leave to figure out this zenith pronlem and to rest. Here it is.
Click here to full screen(Will open new Window so won’t disrupt your surfing as the browser will resize automatically). Will be changing to link image to full screen QTVR (Quicktime VR) soon and for all future panos.
Taken sometime back. Enjoy.
One day, I will look back at this Pano and laugh at myself but here’s my simple effort after getting my KingPano after 5 weeks of wait. Figured out that I had to remove the vertical grip of my Canon 350D to properly set it up on the KingPANO. It’s just too heavy too and it won’t balance properly. So here it is, “Home”, Zenith (top image) still need slight adjustments while the Nadir (bottom image) needs more Photoshopping. For now, it is as it is, taken with a Sigma 10-20mm, Canon 350D mounted on a KingPANO which in turn on a Benro KS-1 seated on a Benro M128 (Carbon Fibre).
