Looking Everywhere at Once
2019-06-22

So if you imagine being able to see all around you, with eyes on the back of your head, side of your head, and under your head – with your body not getting in the way. That's taken some imaging alright I'd say. No.25 Fitzwilliam Place a rather splendid...

https://instagram.com/p/4AXwFfRnB8/?taken-by=conphoto So, this is the green screen in the green room, that happens to have a red carpet – confused?!? Was shooting some portraits of the cast of a new telly advertisement. The cast and crew were busy honing their crafts in Studio 2 @ RTE and I set up shop in the adjoining Green Room.

Dublin Mountains, Tiny Planet
2015-05-15

So here's another of the PhotoSphere Tiny Planet projections... The whole methodology of shooting a 360 is rotating precisely around the exact point on all three axis of where the light bends through the lens of the camera.

Adding to the difficulty of shooting...

Dublin, as any local will know to both their joy and their detriment, is tiny. It's a pleasure to bump into all friends and 'yer man... ' constantly, and a claustrophobic hell for others. Either way its essentially a glorified town, and oddly enough, Ireland is lovingly referred to as Village Ireland. This is a Tiny Planet image, its made by inverting your viewpoint, and going wide from a traditional 360. They kinda look more like little islands,...

PhotoSphere on the Brooklyn Bridge
2015-02-06

I was lucky enough to have some down time on commission over in New York last spring. I was in the throes of a new found love and amazement with Android's Photosphere – it's a pretty amazing bit of software tacked onto the later native stock Android camera which allows you to create full 360s utilising the gyro, compass and processor of the device. After you finish shooting it takes a little while to crunch the images into a 2:1 (that's the flat...

woah there – not so fast cowboy
