The Making of a Royal Panorama in the Royal Theatre of Copenhagen

Queen Margrethe of Denmark has been celebrated all week at her 70th birthday on April 16.

I was invited by the The Danish Royal House to take a panoramic image of all the guests before the performance started.

The pano shows the Director of the Royal Danish Theatre introducing me before the shoot. This pano is made by my friend John Kroll from Virtualworks who assisted me at the shoot.

The Zoomable panorama uses multiresolution technic from Krpano.

It is a partial 187 degree panorama with a resolution of 19216x13231

It was shot with a Canon 5D Mark II and the 24-105mm at 40mm.

3 rows of 8 images which were bracketed with 3 exposures.To be sure I had enough mtrl I shot 2-3 sets in each direction.
It took 3min 35sec to do all the images.

The best images was chosen from this and in a couple of them a combination was made before stitching.

For the final panorama I used the brightest shot which was made at 1/10 F5.6 and at ISO 1250.

The stitch was made in PTGui with the standard PTGui blender which performed very well. Only in 5-6 areas I had to correct the pano in Photoshop for ghosted faces.

Only one in the public had moved the head in a way that needed me to get it manipulated from one of the shots with faster exposure.

A secondary pano was stitched from the darkest exposure and the brightest areas, the chandelier and the nodes at the orchestra was brushed from this pano. has an article in Danish about the shoot Google English Translation
