The Acadia Art Cooperative is a new student organization at Acadia this year, bringing together artists in the community from different disciplines to share and work toegether. I was asked to run a digital imaging workshop, and we decided to work on creating panoramic photos. I took a set of photos and worked through the entire process of creating panormic photos including photography, image processing, stitching, blending, and retouching. Everyone in the group was able to follow along with this same set of photos, taken at the beginning of our workshop.
To assemble these photos, I shared with the group some fantastic open-source (read: free) software that we used throughout the workshop:
Panotools (re-projecting and blending framework, the foundation of advanced panoramic photography)
Hugin (a great visual panoramic image interface for PanoTools)
