Amazing Photography Requires Some Risk -- Or Really Good Software

I'm always amazed by photography that requires the photographer to take risks and make careful plans that allow the photo to be taken.

  • Exhibit A: A National Geographic photographer and his team wanted to make a seamless image of an entire redwood tree from top to bottom. The results (and the planning involved) are amazing.
  • Exhibit B: The planning and setup were involved and equipment was destroyed, but the results were totally worth it.
In the same veign, recent research is making it really easy to fake a composite photo with pretty convincing results. While it's still obvious that they are fakes because the perspective is off, it's a pretty impressive concept.
