Although I enjoy creating images with varying fields of view, from macro to telephoto, I gravitate towards the wider end of the viewing spectrum. When I look through the viewfinder of my camera, I want the experience that I have at that moment to be passed on to the viewer of the final image and for that experience to be as immersive as this two dimensional medium will allow. And with the power of today's high resolution cameras and sophisticated software, it is now possible to draw the viewer into the scene and create a 3D effect that is so convincing that they want to step into it...as if they were standing in my shoes enjoying the same view that I had at the moment the image was captured.
I'm currently honing my skills with 360 degree "photospheres" where, from a number of images stitched together in a 360 degree panorama, an interactive visual experience is created that the viewer can manipulate with the click of a mouse (click here to see an example and move around the park). It's an exciting application of still photography and one that is especially beneficial to anyone who wants to leverage the power of this virtual experience for showing off the inside of a restaurant, business office, home, or outdoor landscape.
