Toscana Italian Restaurant, Interiorama

I’m always merging photos, I love the concept, the doing and the result. Until they make a camera that fits in my pocket and does everything through closeup zoom to fisheye, I’ll probably still be taking multiple shots. A friend tells me they are miniaturising DSLR cameras, I’d like to see much smaller lighter lenses and cameras that did the same job. Then maybe I’d be tempted away from my iPhone.

Interiors can be hard to capture the impression of space. Enter the interiorama as I call it, it’s a panorama taken inside. This one actually spans two rooms. I’ve positioned myself so that both are included in the final photo.

So you get some idea of the scale of the rooms and what they are like as a whole rather than little bits.

The only downside with a really wide angle pano is that it starts to get slitty … sometimes I take multiple slits and join them together for a taller image … I guess the slitty is cool in it’s own way …

Oh and another advantage, I could come home after shooting a bunch of slitty panos and crop them … the one below could have made two separate photos, that way they wouldn’t be so slitty … Swings and roundabouts really !

Any-who … this is where I had a pretty nice pizza the other day, and been posting some photos … my table was over on the left hand side, the first of the lower height tables.

  1. What’s your favourite pizza topping?I have yet to meet someone who likes the Ninja Turtles’ suggestion of anchovies with peanut butter.

    1. Now i like my pizza plain most of the time, tomato sauce, buffalo mozzarella, cherry tomatoes and some fresh basil … I used to like anchovies and olives but not so much these days … anchovies and peanut butter sounds like an acquired taste

  2. Guess I’m going to have to spend some time on Photoshop learning how to do this now. Right now I’m just trying to figure out how to Photoshop the junky areas out of my photos, leaving only the stuff I want to feature. Closeups and cropping do okay, but as some point they just look crappy. Oops, did I just say that????

    1. Yup, you said that out loud … I often remove trash from the beach with Photoshop … But I’m getting better at taking photos that dont have trash in in the first place …

    1. LOL, did a post on photographic authenticity recently … basically I’m damned if I do and damned if I don’t … It’s a error in the merging of photos in the iphone, because TV pictures are changing constantly … Pano photographers are well aware of these types of phenomena … I could have Photoshoppped the TV, but I kinda like it that way … Photoshopped to the max isn’t always best 🙂

    1. Thanks hun, I’ve had a few suggestions along the road, including cat photographer that I’m going to make billions out of … certainly would like to find a reliable income source, but I think I and my business partner want to go with web development/design/seo, it’s what we’re working on in the background … I think it’s a larger customer base and more “secure” future 🙂

  3. I think people tend to respond better when they know it’s your creativity and thought that went in to the process.

    I know I do.

    But the technology is changing very quickly, so just where that raw talent and creative imagination is can change too.
