Have come along way since the last post. Practice makes perfect I guess and I am amazed at what subtle little differences can make! I am still getting a small 'hole' at the zenith, but tilting to 7.5 degrees decreases it and am able to edit this out, however, this is because I'm taking the shots outside and on grass so editing is easy! Hopefully I will crack the complexities of it in good time. Experimenting indoors on a tiled floor and it all goes wrong. A lot of trial and error ahead I feel!! I have tried and tried but just cannot get it anywhere near right when there is a tiled floor involved!! When you say tilting the tripod, Will this not then just capture your feet instead of the tripod?!?!
Here is a link to what I mean about the tiled floor: http://users.tpg.com.au/wjtpg/test1/pano1.jpg and the images are the same path, but 1.jpg, 2.jpg, 3.jpg, 4.jpg & 5.jpg instead of pano1.jpg
This is a link the most successful one yet, but still not perfect as can be seen on the crossbar of the swing and the tree trunk to the right of the slide, but I'm getting close!! http://users.tpg.com.au/wjtpg/test2/pano2.jpg and the images are the same path, but 1.jpg, 2.jpg, 3.jpg, 4.jpg & 5.jpg instead of pano2.jpg
These are not the original files, they have been reduced in size and please ignore the exposures!!
