I really enjoy shooting 360-degree panoramas, and especially stitching them into little planets as you see here. It’s such a unique perspective of our world. This winter I bought a DJI Phantom 4 Pro quadcopter so I could shoot them from even greater heights. This is my home in Lee, Maine from 393ft above ground level on January 23, 2017, 14:52. To the northwest (about 1 o’clock on the circumference) you can see Mt. Katahdin—the highest peak in Maine—on the horizon 46 miles away, and to the south (between 7 and 7 o’clock) you can see Mt. Jefferson in my town 3.25 miles away. The windmills along Rollins Mountain and Dow Mountain can be seen to west (between 9 and 12 o’clock) reaching 3 to 9 miles away. Dwinal Flowage Wildlife Management Area, dedicated to my grandfather and Maine Game Warden, David Priest Sr., stretches to the northwest (3 to 4 o’clock).

Camera settings: 8.8mm, f/6.3, ISO 100, 5 exposures of 1/320 to 1/2000.

Stitching data: 4 rows of 9 images + 2 zenith images x 5 exposures for a total of 190 images.

Equipment used: DJI Phantom 4 Pro, iPhone 7 Plus, and Litchi. RAW conversion from DNG to 16-bit TIFF via Lightroom, aligned with PTGui, and manually blended in Photoshop.

VAST PRINTS

THE HIGHEST RESOLUTION PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS EVER CREATED

VAST Prints are fine art photographic paper prints that arrive ready to be mounted and/or framed. They are created using the sharpest photographic printer in commercial use: a very rare specialty printer that formerly printed currency and military surveillance imagery.  Learn more  

Every VAST Print has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the print and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology.

VAST DISPLAYS

THE HIGHEST QUALITY PHOTOGRAPHIC DISPLAYS EVER CREATED

VAST Displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain a VAST Print sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden brace on the back causes the display to gracefully float off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style.  Learn more
