Royal Wedding Giga Pixel Panorama

Shot for the BBC, a 1.15 Giga Pixel Panorama of the Royal Wedding (GigaPan)

The BBC commissioned Spherical Images to photograph this highly challenging, huge, panorama of the royal wedding.

    How did you ensure that there were no stitching errors in the wedding party, did that group all fit in one shot?

    It’s an AMAZING picture. Great work! Would love to see how it was done, getting all the pics needed when you have a moving subject for part of it.

    Great photo. Can I ask what the maximum time diffence is between each adjacent photograph is? I can see the odd shot that you can tell (i.e a woman on the left with two faces etc), but generally speaking you find it difficult to tell any movement. There is one part that is really confusing. On the far left in the foreground, there is the back of a person in a black rain coat. Below the metal bar of the platform he/she has no legs, just a continuation of the crowd and a metal storage box. The odd thing is that I assume there should be some horizontal and vertical joins somewhere, but I cannot see them.

    Many thanks

    Hi everyone, thanks for the comments.

    In response to some of the questions:

    The wedding party was two shots, with a lot of masking :-)

    Photos were approx one second apart.

    I don’t know if you have received a lot of interest for ur Royal wedding panoramic on the BBC website already but is there any way of getting ur hands on a print of that? Cos it’s kinda cool. Thing is I didn’t know if you do prints…
    Let me know,
    Thanks Jonny

    “Thing is I didn’t know if you do prints…”

    I am hoping to sell this as a print/framed print soon. However I am waiting to clear the issues on the images rights with the BBC.

    Did you actually stop at 200 degree rotation? As someone who was off to right of your image I’d love to know if you continued your rotation all the way round.

    • Henry StuartNo Gravatar03 May 2011

      Yes, afraid so – there was a camera man to my right, limiting the swing I could get…

  • Samantha ParryNo Gravatar04 May 2011

    Would it be possible to contact me when the print becomes available to purchese. My husband is actually the lead rider on the carriage carrying the bride and groom, and obviously we would like as many pictures of the day as possible to save for our children and grandchildren. Thankyou very much.

    […] the 360 degree photo buzz. How did we ever manage without being able to walk around a photo? Spherical Images were commissioned by the BBC for their Royal Wedding coverage but our favorite of the moment is Lee […]

    Greetings from Bavaria, Reiner
