Sébastien Pérez-Duarte

Sébastien Pérez-Duarte is a computer and photography dilettante, having studied for many long years something completely unrelated. He has however the strange urge to do things as mind-numbingly and thoroughly as possible, and has found in spherical panoramas and their derivations a quiet and non-life threatening hobby. He started specializing in conformal mappings after seeing Lloyd Burchill's work and is now officially an addict, trying to find in the arcana of cartography journals the right stuff.

Technical details

Panoramas were shot with a Canon 300D with EF-S 10-22mm, with a Nodal Ninja 2, before a forced upgrade to a Nikon D200 with 10.5mm fish-eye and a Nodal Ninja 3. Stitching is mostly done under GNU/Linux with hugin, blended with enblend and projected in Gimp/Mathmap.
