2014 marks a brand new year of change for Ian Holyoak Photography. In addition to the services already offered which includes professionally retouched custom Commercial advertising images, wedding photography, business and family portrature, architectural and residential high-end imagery, This year I will be introducing High-def broadcast quality video, underwater video, quadcopter drone phototography and video, along with Gigapan size panoramas and 360 degree by 180 degree Panoramas.
What does that mean for you, the customers? The best quality media for your presentations is right here in the Caribbean at your fingertips.
Check out this Extremely sharp hi-res interactive 360 degree panorama taken of Pinney's Beach, Nevis. Just outside of the world famous Beach bar "Sunshine's". This 3.55Gb sized file is compiled of 66 separate images. The uploaded version was shrunk down to 377mb, which is still large enough to maintain pretty good resolution.
Mobile devices are fed a smaller compressed version, so for the full experience, I recomend viewing full screen on your computer monitor. See how far you can zoom into the picture and check out all of the details. The image is hosted at the world's leading site for 360 panoramas...360Cities. Linked into Google maps, this panorama has earned a spot in the ever growing online interactive world of High resolution, next generation photography.
How's it made?
It is a compilation of shots, all taken in 3 exposures per frame, blended together and then stiched into one continuous image. After the intial setup of leveling the shooting platform, I captured the scene 3 separate times and chose the most desirable frames to use for the final output.
After a week of blending and stitching, tweaking and detailing I finally had my 3.55Gb 8bit Tiff file ready to upload. The Nevis island internet has definetly room for improvement, and after a week of attempting to upload with the service cutting in and out, I finally gave up, shrank the file size down and was able to complete the upload.
See if you can find this little girl running around
