HDR panorama portrait recording from Arthur van Amerongen & Rob Muntz. This is a ongoing project that started about 2009 and is called the ( close ) Encounters project. The panorama is recorded in HDR ( High Dynamic Range ).
Background notes about the ( close ) Encounters project. The HDRI panorama portraits are recorded in HDRI ( High Dynamic Range Images ). That makes taking the image with some thrill — it could be ruined due to the fact that if the people are moving the portrait could fail.
