A couple of business awards ceremonies I attended last year, presented in a custom built flash panoramic viewer. The viewer has two modes (accessed via right clicking), one for slow pc’s (default) and one for faster pc’s using flash8+’s displacementMap effect to emulate perspective distortion a la quicktime VR. There’s a nice ‘lens flare’ type thing added to some lights too.
Grampian Business Awards – June 2006 – Ardoe house
Northern Star Business Awards – September 2006 – Aberdeen Exhibition Centre
Camera note: At these kind of events you don’t really want a) to be carting around a big camera b) annoying people with flash photography, these pics couldn’t have been done as easily without one of the best compact digicams around – the fuji finepix f11 (now superseded by f30/40) . Full manual control and exceptional low light performance with high ISO in a small package.
