An interactive panoramic photo of the Taipei Photowalk 2009 event this last Sunday. (Click here or on the photo to explore the panorama)  I had a heartbreaking 16GB CF card crash mid-transfer the same night and out of what I managed to save (the card’s with professionals now, fingers crossed) were just 3 fisheye images, from which I made this pano. More on VR (“Virtual Reality”) photography after the jump.

I’m going to be blogging a bit about panoramic photography – a huge interest of mine – but for those of you keen on more details immediately, the Danish Panorama.dk offers a good overview and VRMag always has the most impressive examples. For the perfectionist seeking top quality, the process can be quite cumbersome, involving tripods and fine-tuned tripod heads, but I find shooting handheld with an 8mm on a full-frame body allows for acceptable results, with parallax errors that can be worked through in post production.

Check out the other weekly panoramas and posts about panography here.
