Freiburg Panoramas
Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany

In 2002 I started shooting panoramas as a hobby. Since my trumpet and I are also involved in a brass band, there sadly is not at all that much time for panoramas. I started taking cylindrical panoramas with an Olympus Camedia 3030 on a Kaidan panoramic tripod head, using Apple Quicktime VR for stitching.

By now I am taking my panoramas with an EOS 5D MKIV, a Canon 15 mm lens, a Canon 8-15 mm lens, a Nodal Ninja Ultimate M1-L multirow panoramic head or an Nodal Ninja R1 and PhotomatixPro, DXO, PTGui Pro, Photoshop, Pano2VR.

Quite a few of my panoramas are taken in or near Freiburg. Freiburg is located at the Western slope of the Black Forest and its gothic cathedral is said to have got the most beautiful church tower of all Christianity.
