Today’s TCPC meetup on Introduction to Gigapan Photography is an unusual and unique one – none of us are required to take our cameras out. However, as a practice, we did take our cameras out :-).
Gigapan is pioneer of gigapixel panoramic views: it makes devices, software and infrastructure for creating, sharing and viewing very large high resolution images.
D. Ravinder Reddy, a prominent photo journalist and author, has been quite active on Gigapan Photography. His Gigapan profile is here.
Ravinder Reddy, with some of his close associates, ran this session on Gigapan photography today. Attended this live and interactive session on the technology and techniques of panoramic photography. The session is very interactive and Q&A structured than a typical classroom course. Ravinder discussed critical factors like zoom, aperture, composition, light and accessories during this session. His Gigapan equipment is demonstrated and attendees got a good feel of what it takes to create a good panoramic photography (and Gigapan in particular.) Here are a few pics from the session today.
At the end of the session, we also got a chance to peek into his works and Ravi Frames, his custom frame and collage making venture.
