HDRI Panoramas

Recently acquired a Manfrotto panoramic head for my tripod. Plan is to shoot HDRIs for IBL. Not sure if I’ll actually need customized HDRIs. In the film industry they’re important because the CG has to match the lighing in the live action, so an HDRI of the scene is almost mandatory. I did a workshop a few years back on Look Development and IBL with Noah Vice, who worked on Ironman and quite a few other well known movies. My needs are a bit less demanding, but I’m planning on using IBL extensively for a while. I’m waiting for my licence for PTGui to come through. I shot a series to process an hour ago in my kitchen. Should be interesting. Once I worked out how to set up the panoramic head it proved to be very useful.
