Heya!

Great first time tour! I really enjoy nature tours myself and would love to do more. A couple of tripod errors i see, but no big deal at all.

Question: How did you stitch your Nadir? Technique and shooting style?

Max:

I'm still working on my shooting technique - I jumped into VR and virtual tours at more or less the same time, after long experience shooting gigapixel panoramas with a Gigapan robot head. I'm shooting with a Nikon D800e/Nikkor 16mm/ Nodal Ninja RS-1. I started with 6 shots around at 0 incline, 1 Nadir at -90 and one zenith at +90, but I had stitching problems and lots of photoshop time. The most promising technique so far looks to be 6 shots at +7.5, 2 nadir at -90 and one zenith at +45. I'm still experimenting and am certainly open to suggestions.

The panoramas in the tour are a mix of all of the patterns I've tried along the way. I'm curious about where you saw errors - I'm sure they're there and I'd like to correct them.

Thanks for your feedback and encouragement!

Hey,

Nice that sounds about right. I am also always trying to figure out the best way to stitch and shoot and the problems i ma having are mostly in the nadir stitch. I figure there is way better way to do it then post production work.

The error I saw was in the first Panorama, in the Nadir, you can see pieces of the tripod on some of the rocks. The rest of them looks great. Do you work with you Nadir after you stitch it in the Cube faces? or before the stitch? Also i might know why there is a difference in style of shooting/stitching. I am using a 8mm Rokinon fish eye, so my shots are much wider.

Either way. Its an amazing world, this virtual photography world,

Good luck dude!

-Max

hi,

Some panoramics are too dark on one side !? You should more treated the shadows. A good start ! :P
A map should be nice because we are "lost" in your Virtual Tour...
