Mini Planet - Church by electricjonny Mini Planet - Church by electricjonny
You guys must be getting sick of these by now :B lol, anyway, I was thinking of how to mix these up and try new things, and I thought I would try an indoor Mini Planet. Then I tried to think of a good place to shoot, and I thought about a big shopping mall, but I was pretty sure they wouldn't let me spend an hour with a tripod taking pictures in the store :giggle:

So since it was Sunday when I shot this, my parents were getting back from church and I thought that would be the perfect place try this. My parents church is fairly new, and I thought it had a nice mixture of architecture (another of my favorite things to photograph) and peaceful surroundings.

So I gave it a shot, and it worked pretty well for not ever doing an indoor Mini Planet before. The only thing I wish I could have done differently would be to have shot this with the ceiling lights on. I spent about 20 minutes looking all over for the switches or dimmers or whatever controls them, and didn't find anything. Oh well, it gives it a more quiet feel, which sort of works since the church is empty.

Anyway, there's another (older) church I might try out later, since I think this one worked out pretty well.

This Mini Planet was shot with 180 images. Shooting 360 degrees horizontal and about 90 degrees vertical, then stitching it into a panoramic.

I'd appreciate any comments or critiques you might have :)

Haha, well it was only 180 degrees across. The total images I used in this shot was 132, although I overshot things quite a bit. It's just a bad habit from my old days shooting panoramas =P

Thanks for the comment :)

No Problems. :manhug:

Oh, sorry. I thought this was a comment on my most recent mini planet, not this one specifically :slow: But yes, this was 180 photos. Not 132 that I originally said. Sorry about that, I've been up for a while and I'm sort of tired right now :slow:

No Problems. :P
When I was taking panoramas I made about 3 shots. :XD:
I so fail.

Haha :lol:

That's not failing, it's just not taking it as far as you could have =P Panoramas can be rather scary and hard, but I find that it doesn't really matter how many you make, it's more about how good they are :)

Indeed, but to be honest I don't really have any good places to take panormas imo. :<
Well, I won't bother you anylonger. :P

I look forward to see moar planets from you. :giggle:

Hehe, I don't mind replies from people =P

And for locations, it can sometimes be hard to find good spots, but just take a careful look around; you'll find that there's tons of good spots to take panoramas :)

Thanks :aww:

I think I like it with the lights off, but it would have been nice to see one with the lights on, just to compare them :)

Thanks for the comments :D

Definitely give it a shot :nod:

Although this one just about killed my computer. I used over 200 gigs worth of scratch disk space waiting for Photoshop to blend the panoramic :slow:

But it's pretty fun, it just takes a long time to get right.

:giggle: Yeah it took my computer about 6 hours total just to think about everything and blend the panoramic together. Thank god for a TV next to my computer :B

But yeah, I had to clear some space on my hard drives to let it work it's magic.

Lucky for me I have a nice computer that would handle large images if I chose to do one of these...which I am considering.
