my first little | planet

little planet cologne west. photo: ms/dpa

i created this image in four steps:

  • i positioned the drone somewhere in the air, 15 meters high in this case.
  • i let the drone app take 34 photos around its hovering spot
  • i used microsoft’s excellent → “ICE” stitching software to put the 34 images together
  • i rendered the stitched image as stereoscopic and saved it.

the original is more than 20,000 pixels wide.

the image below is just another interpretation of the same 34 footage images:

same scene as above, different projection method
