Hand-held 360×180 panoramas

These are examples of panoramas which have been photographed without the use of a tripod or panorama head. They rely on me being able to rotate about a fixed point with respect to the lens no parallax point and to keep the angle of the camera relatively constant throughout the photography sequence. Some of these have been taken with multiple exposures (3 or 5) which are blended together to enable the capture of a higher dynamic range of bright to dark than would otherwise be possible. Click on the photos to load the interactive panoramas.
