Luminous Las Vegas at Dusk and Night • 360° Aerial Panorama
This panorama can be opened in several different resolutions. High resolution panorama with the best quality is about 7 Mb large and it is suitable for fast internet connections and modern computers. For slower internet and old weak computers we created the smaller low resolution panorama. Some small details have been sacrificed but the size of low resolution panorama is nomore than 2 Mb.
After we had taken the first and the third prizes in the contest Epson International Pano Awards, had shot the spherical panorama at a speed of 250 kilometers per hour, had made the aerial gig-panorama, had dived and had shot from inside the microwave oven, in a supermarket our photographer Dima Moiseenko bought the book Ten Easy Ways to Improve the Quality of Your Photos.
The first advice on "Which camera is better?" we didn't appreciate because we had already got the camera. The second advice on an objective was not useful too due to the same reason. The third advice: "When making a portrait, focus on the eyes of a model" was useless as we don't make portraits.
In general, we understood that we had already got enough experience and had achieved much in shooting because none advice, we had read in that book, was useful for us yet.
But, suddenly, Dima, who was reading that book for us aloud, raise his forefinger up. It's an ordinary thing when Dima, using such gesture, says something wise and that is why we were all ears. Dima was reading slowly: "Buy a firm tripod. It allows you to fix safely your camera making night shooting". Well, we appreciated that information as we had never shot night aerial panoramas. Staying silent a couple of minutes Dima announced that nobody had ever shot it before, perhaps.
Frankly speaking, it was strange that we had not still realized it because the advice itself was so easy. So, without any delay we went to a shop and bought the firmest tripod we could find there. In order to check our new purchase Dima with his new tripod left directly for Las Vegas. There he with difficulty put the tripod into a helicopter and flew up to shoot a night city.
And, in general, he succeeded indeed.
Now we are waiting for Dima's return. He promised to read us the fifth advice from that wise book.
