Welcome to panoHead.net
You will find some interesting photography here.
I like to capture panoramic images indoors and out. I process the resulting spherical
images to produce 2D images and interactive media. The product
of these techniques can be truly fascinating.

I use a process based on high dynamic range image processing
and tone-mapping to create many of my images.
high dynamic range imaging
I create high dynamic range images by shooting multiple exposures
of a scene and combining them. This HDR image is the source
for derivative images and panoramas via a process called tone-mapping.
Image fusion is the process of combining the properly exposed
parts of multiple images and fusing them together into a composite.
The result is an image which looks normal but retains details
from the highlight and shadow regions of a scene.
The process of tone-mapping converts color and luminance
to color tones of proportional brightness and then increases
local contrast to enhance detail. The effect is to "compress"
the dynamic range of an image, enhancing highlight and shadow
detail. If over applied, images become "cooked" and no longer
bear any resemblance to reality (sometimes this is the objective).
A series of high-dynamic-range tone-mapped images are stitched together to create an equirectangular
projection from which many derivative images are created.

Calibrate Your Monitor
You need to have a monitor which has been properly "tuned"
to get the best possible viewing experience.
Adjust the brightness and contrast of your monitor so that
you can distinguish each of the grayscale patches.
