Another one of my stitched panorama’s using my new Novoflex VR-System Pro-II panorama kit courtesy of Mainline Photographics. This one I’ve taken enough frames (tho I didn’t know it at the time :)) for a full 360˚ panorama.


Entropy * Photographic Exhibition

One concept; 9 Photographers; 9 Interpretations

I’ve just completed printing all of my exhibition prints for our upcoming exhibition. It was a careful painstaking job but a huge relief :). Seeing those big beautiful prints coming out of the printer was amazing. It’s so much more real when those photographs finally come out into the real world. There’s definitely something to be said for having solid fine art prints you can hold in your hand.

Less than seven weeks to go…

I’d originally planned to have my images mounted on black core Gatorboard. I had one test image professionally mounted but I and many of the rest of my group had decided the look just wasn’t quite right. There were a number of practical benefits for this system but in the end I believe traditional matting and framing will suit these images better.


Our exhibition will be at The Art Space on the Concourse @ Chatswood (Sydney’s North Shore). It’s showing from Wednesday 7th to Sunday 18th September 2016 and entry is Free. If you can make it we’d love to see you there.

What’s Next?:

Next step is to select and order all of the custom frames, and cut all of the mats for all the images.

The full 360˚ pano is composed of two rows of eight (8) frames (16 frames in total). There wasn’t enough data to cover the area at the bottom so to create the fully immersive 360×180˚ photosphere I’ve had to “fake” the very bottom :).

Below is the full flattened equirectangular image and thus the name “rollercoaster”. Deb thought it looked like a rollercoaster with the structure and the milky way arch curving up and down repeatedly through the frame. She’s much more creative and inventive than me – thanks Deb :).

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. Click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

It’s not perfect by any means but sometimes happy accidents do happen :).
