Part 1.

In this tutorial, I'm showing you my three favourite panorama shooting techniques, all using an 8mm fisheye lens, both on full frame and crop cameras. Virtually all of my panoramas on http://www.pano.ie are shot using either of these methods.

The first two use a so-called "philopod" -- a string rather than a tripod -- whereas the third technique involves a tripod and panorama head (the Nodal Ninja 3 in this case). The advantages of using a piece of string rather than a tripod are clear: It's fast (takes virtually no time to set-up), it fits in any photobag (just wrap it around the lens), it saves you from lugging around a heavy tripod+panohead, and it's much more inconspicuous.

To read more about the brilliant "philopod pitch variation technique", see here: http://wiki.panotools.org/Philopod_pi....

I will also record a number of screen casts about how to post-process and stitch the images from this tutorial together to create the full 360x180° spherical panorama with no tripod in it, and do some retouching.

This is part one in a whole series of tutorials: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=...

Thanks for your interest and stay tuned!
