Jerzy, last year you won the title of Kolor best panoramic photographer 2012 with the panorama “Bazylika Mariacka (Krakow)”. What did this victory mean to you?
I was very happy. My friends and family were proud of my prize. The priest of the Bazylika also enjoyed & congratulated me a lot. He bought 10 Panobooks!
Could you remind us some details about the shot & the image “Bazylika Mariacka (Krakow)”?
The Bazylika Mariacka is one of the most beautiful churches in Poland. It was very interesting experience. I started to shot panorama at 6 am to avoid crowd and took 7 hours, because there was low light. I used exposure time 1/30 – 10 seconds, Canon EOS 5 MarkII + Canon EF 50mm f/1,4 + Nodal Ninja 5, 71 images + 30 images HDR, Autopano Giga, Photoshop, Panotour Pro.
After your prize, did you lead other projets?
I also made the 5 gigapixels photography The Veit Stoss altar, a virtual tour of Lausanne, the Schweizer National-Circus KNIE and many more. I love this job! In all projects I use my Panogear, Autopano Giga and Panotour Pro.
We have already received more than 1 000 panoramas but I did not see your name in the list of contributors. What are you ploting ?
I will send my panorama soon because this week I have a session in a very interesting place…
Do you think that this year, you will finish in the top 5?
I’m not thinking about winning, I prefer to be surprised again.
