Spherical panoramas that are not boring: Andrew Bodrov’s ‘Litte Planets’


For over ten years Estonian photographer Andrew Bodrov has been photographing panoramas all over the world. Last year he created this 4 gigapixel panorama of our neighbor planet Mars (consisting of 407 pictures by the Curiosity space probe). His newest project are spherical panoramas which – unlike typical photos of this genre – are anything but clichéd and boring. This is mainly due to a good eye for detail and a thoughtful choice of motifs. Like other trendy effects (HDR, anyone?), the “little planets” cannot replace an interesting subject. Bodrov is conscious of that and takes pictures of subjects that would be interesting without the effect, but gain something special because of it. His preferred motifs are rocket launches, spooky cemeteries, air shows and monuments.
