For one week we immersed in the land and the people - the basis for future exhibitions.
From 5 to 12 October
as a member of the Community of Artists
Diversity of Art's
was on this trip together with 10 other friends and acquaintances
to get to know as much of the country Portugal, its culture and the people within this relatively short period.
Many of this week's impressions were recorded in approximately 1600 shots
and serve as an essential basis for the future envisaged exhibitions on Portugal.
In particular, for two reasons we wish to discuss here briefly on this trip and the pictures taken.
1. Photography, subsequent image and editorial processing
Finding the interesting motifs and the appropriate viewing angle, is not always easy.
Especially since certain situations often arise spontaneously. And what camera setting is right?
After the 1600 recordings were madeâ€‹â€‹ (without a tripod) and after our return from Portugal it was about to implement
as quickly as possible, but also in high quality, the online coverage on the web pages of the Community of Artists.
Within 5 days each recording was checked and "processed in a first step".
This means, depending on the type of recording (landscape, object, portrait or animal shot),
to select the right, focusing clipping and to carry out the "standard adaptions" such as the brightness and contrast gradients
as well as the color scheme.
Subsequently all recordings had brought to the target size for presentation in the browser,
and appropriate accompanying texts were created.
The result can be viewed in the form of 12 travel reports on the pages of the Community of Artists:
Some of these recordings have now been processed in a second iteration with an "artistic brush stroke".
Have you already found the "originals" in the trip reports?
We are happy to provide you these works in a PDF document in a higher resolution:
2. Interesting way of presenting panoramic images on the internet
Gaze out into the distance.
Landscapes often provide stunning views of nature.
To accurately and comprehensively present a landscape in the browser,
there is the presentation in the form of an interactive 3D panorama.
For this purpose, individual images are joined into an overall image in advance.
A distinction is made between partial panoramas and 360Â° panoramas.
The latter offer complete view in all directions.

Use the lower left toolbar buttons to interact with the panoramic image.
Alternatively, you can also work with the mouse:
For example click in the image and hold down the left mouse button, while moving the mouse in a direction.
Or use the Ctrl and Shift key to zoom in and to zoom out.
Here is a second example of a 235Â° panorama.
