We’re often asked about our travel photography, how we get the people, landscape, food and cityscape photos we do. When it comes to great photography, it’s not just about what photography gear you have, but how you use it.
Other Photography Gear
Velbon RUP-43 Monopod: We find a monopod easier to carry with us around the world than a tripod. Used for low light and panoramic photos.
Hoya Circularizing Polarizing Filter (72mm):
Helps you get clouds that pop and cut through glare on bright days. We also use the Hoya UV Filter 72mm mainly used to protect the glass from the original lens. Has saved us on more than one occasion when the camera fell and the filter broke instead of the original glass of the lens. Highly recommended.
360-Degree Panoramic Photography
We’re often asked about how we take and display our 360-degree panoramic photographs. We did a full interview about the process here. But in simple terms, we use an 8 mm lens with our Nikon DSLR and then take 4 photos (vertical orientation) at 90-degrees plus one photo overhead. Then, we use software to stitch everything together to see what you display here.
Autopano Giga and PanotourPro: We drop the raw (NEF) files into Autopano Giga to stitch together a flat panorama. Then we take that panorama and drop it into PanotourPro to get the flash “tour” you see here.
