Interesting photography technique – mini planets

Here’s a collection of cool pics…


…and a bunch more here on Flickr


…along with this explanation of how they’re done:

vega – no secret, as jung said, it is a re-projection of an full 360° equirectangular pano, i use a photoshop plugin called flexify to do the trick, although there are many other ways, helmut dersch’s pano-tools, etc –

this original composite pano was stitched from 8 10.5mm FF fisheye shots, but a non fisheye could have been used as well…

and a simple tutorial here –… although this does not give quite the same results as starting with a full equirectangular image…


Thanks to Ryan at Amnesia for putting me on to this.
