Photographic Panoramic Demonstraion

Continuing Professional Development

Date:14-16 May 2010
Venue: Limfjordscentret Doverodde, Denmark
Instructors: Paul Laidler

When we think of landscape within western art one generally recalls billboard size paintings on canvas that describe vast romantic scenes of nature. These pictorial views have alluded to nature’s heavenly creator and our witnessing of Gods sublime forces withih a two dimensional picture plane.

Real nature can only be experienced partially, but in the panorama vast expanses of space are surveyed with the all-seeing eye of God.
Grunenberg. Christopher. The whole wide world: Expanded Painting. Glen Brown, Tate Publishing 2009 p.19

Grunenberg describes the idea of expanded views in relation to human perception and our binocular sighted field of view. Here the panorama presents the possibility of creating two dimensional representations toward the spatial appearance of a three-dimensional world.

The creation of a photographic panorama loan’s itself to both paintings scale and our visual experience of three dimensional space.This demonstration will use photography to show how to take a series of digital recordings prior to merging the individual files within Adobe Photoshop CS3. The demonstration will also cover different panoramic recording and construction methods as a means to consider the appearance of space in the final two dimensional printed image.
