A place for experimental photographers

Stereographic Projections Continued

This post is just a quick update to Stereographic Projections. If you are not familiar with this kind of photography, please read Stereogarphic Projections and Equirectangular Panoramas.

You can easily change the composition of your projections by shifting the centre of your panorama in the panorama preview window, while stitching it in Hugin. If you align the centre of the projection with the Nadir (the point where you were standing when shooting the panorama) you will get the classic circular ‘Little Planet’ effect. If you align the centre of your projection with the Zenith (the point right above the place where you were standing when shooting the panorama) you will get a reversed projection. Obviously, you may also shift the centre to other positions in order to achieve different results.

There is also a Flickr group called The World in Tunnel Vision, dedicated to reversed stereographic projections you can check out for some inspiration.

Thanks for reading and have fun with your projections.
