“Alternative Perspectives” is a surreal photo series created by photographer and filmmaker Randy Scott Slavin via distorting a normal landscape into a magnificent swirl of circular patterns. The foundation of the landscape is always visible but he takes up to one hundred pictures to build the final, distorted scenes. The results are whimsical, and occasionally eerie, scenes that reflect the portion and scale of Slavin’s surroundings when he took the photo. The whole idea is to take a series of photos based on things we’ve already seen and look at them with a new perspective. Really Stunning Work! [source]
David Jackson, a British photographer, uses a technique called stereographic projection to turn landscapes and familiar landmarks into mini planets. Stereographic projection is a form of digital processing that shows a 360-degree spherical panorama as a flat image.
Panoramic photography (wiki) is a technique of photography, using specialized equipment or software, that captures images with elongated fields of view. An image showing a field of view approximating, or greater than, that of the human eye – about 160° by 75° – may be termed panoramic.
Panoramic Photos can be very beautiful when they are captured property because the photo gives you a very complete view of a particular landscape. Here I rounded up a total of 15 breathtaking panoramic shots taken by photographers all over the world, just to give you an idea how beautiful they type of photos can be.
