You guys must be getting sick of these by now
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
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
