planet ferris state university by electricjonny planet ferris state university by electricjonny
well i've been working on this for a while now, and i believe it is somewhat decent, although i might repost one later if i can touch it up a little.

while this may look like a birds eye view of the ground with a fish eye lens, it's not. i started off with a 360 degree panorama and then just lowered the camera and kept going around till i was taking pictures of the legs of my tripod. there's about 75 seperate pictures in here total. after stitching some things together i made it rap around till both ends met.

this is me standing in the center of campus here at ferris state university. you can't really tell but the legs of my tripod are in the center of the picture.

the center looks sorta off becouse of the way i was shooting strait down at the ground. it's a lot like trying to acurately display a flat map of earth; something is going to be distorted. this was as good as i could get it, although i may go at it some more later. i couldn't really think of anything to do with the background so i just put a white border to square it up. i wish you could see more detail, but i think it's better to see the whole peice than the crazy detail.


sony dsc s85 and lots of stuff in photoshop.

I saw this in The Rock. I'd seen in on here before though. It's really cool.

Oh man, they still have that image up? I put it up there about three years ago or so.

Anyway, that's cool that it's still up. And thanks for the comments and fave :)

Can you point some links to me to see in practice/ drawing steps how you change the angle please ?

I cannot understand, how you look like a spot in the circle while you have low angle than your height or equal of.

May I also ask what these central 2 poles are please ?

This is the technique I used, [link]

The poles are two lamp posts, they got spread out since the earth panoramic sort of does that with these ;)
