Panoramas at NPPA Visual Journalism Workshops

If you're coming to the NPPA Visual Journalism Workshops and plan to attend the panorama session, there will be panorama heads, lenses and demo versions of software for your use.

Bill Bailey at Nodal Ninja has loaned us six of his company's panorama heads (3 NN3 and 3 NN 5) plus levelers for your use. These heads are also available for purchase at a workshop discount of 10%.

We'll also have a couple of Bo Bracket pano heads for the Sigma 8mm f/3.5 available.

Canon, Nikon and Sigma have loaned lenses, a mix of fisheyes, extreme wide-angle, and wide-angle zooms.

There will be demo versions of PTGui and Pano2VR available for you to load onto your laptops.

If you have a tripod or monopod, bring that if you can fit it in your kit.

During the sessions, I'll fill you in on gear checkout. I plan to set up times on Thursday and Friday for one-on-one with anyone who needs help with stitching, and critique if you desire.

Feel free to contact me directly (gary [at] garyobrien {dot} com) if you have questions.
