Thought some of you might like to see one of the photos Iíve been spending a lot of time putting together recently. I canít put it in the gallery here, so this is the only placeÖ. I expect someone will pull the link, if they do you can find the image on my blog.

I've been meaning to try this for some time, finally met up with a cyclist on a nice day and got the shot. Itís taken some time to put together, but I think it works quite well. This chap is training for the Ironman Triathlon - mad Smile

Here's the pic - http://www.peterstephens.co.uk/interactive_photography/sport/training_for_the_ironman_triathlon.php

Would like to know what you all think of it?

Very cool, when I saw just the still I didn't like the warping, but as a 360 I love it.
How do you do these?

Some great examples on your website. I especially like the car showroom shots and the way you've shot above and below so there's no evidence of a tripod.

Very clever stuff.

Thank you Smile How do I do it? well..... basically these pix are made up of at least 8 still shots, 6 around, one up and one down. Depending on camera and lens combo this can differ.... I've got one setup that will do it in 2 shots, very low quality though.

I like doing the car shots, they can be quite tricky.... most of them are HDR composite images - usually made from 9 panoramas altogether.

An interesting concept that I've seen for building interiors before but for something like a cyclist I feel it would be better if you could rotate the bike and move around it if you see what I mean. Still very interesting to look at and you've done a great job putting it together.

it can be done.... a lot of work to remove the shadow from the tripod though - would be better to take in the summer to reduce the shadow length. To spin the bike around I would take at least 16 photos.... 32 ideally. Have a few smaller object 360s on my site.

That is impressive; it gives such a feeling of depth.

He might want to get his buckled wheel, in the second shot, fixed before the event Wink

Excellent Peter. Excellent...

I particularly like the Steam Engine VR - and the Gigapixel work is very impressive.
