Miroslav DruckmÃ¼ller and his companions acheive some fantastic photographic results when it comes to photographing the suns corona during a solar eclipse. Using a technique called photo stacking, a series of images in which you would not see many details can be compiled into one image, bringing out the very faint objects that you wouldn’t normally see. Check out the rest of his site as well, there are many outstanding astronomy photos and tidbits of information to be found there.
I have long been fascinated with panoramic photography, although my own experiments with the technique have been, eh, less than satisfactory. ViewAt.org has some beautiful, breathtaking panoramic photography of various locations throughout the world. The photos are arranged on a google map, and the site has it’s own viewer that lets you select standard or high resolution. Quick tip – you can use the arrow keys to move around in the photo, and shift and control to zoom in and out, respectivley.
I noticed a technique over on Digital Photography School Forum where someone had taken a photo of a building and mirrored it in an odd way to give the impression of some sort of strange construction. I just had to try it. These are some buildings in downtown Wilmington, NC that I tried this technique on.
