Serge Ramelli on Low-Light Photosynths

Well known Paris-based photographer Serge Ramelli  has created a tutorial on how to shoot and process a Photosynth walk in a very low-light environment. And where better to try it out than inside the incredible Notre Dame cathedral in Paris?

Here it is… Thank you Serge!

Here’s the first synth Serge ever made. Check out the glorious colors, and the sheen of the cobblestones next to the Seine.

And here’s the one he shot inside Notre Dame. Very challenging conditions, especially the very weak light combined with the need to be hand-held. All secrets about how he shot and processed his raw images are revealed in the video above.

    Great software and great Serge too.

    Shooting on manual exposure so that the entire batch of photos can be adjusted with the same settings is really great advice for consistency throughout the synth in interiors where the lighting isn't going to change dramatically.

    I'll have to look up more of Serge's photography now! ツ

    Don't forget to set the WB to manual too.

    Excellently explained. I'm a fan of all the different ways that photography is changing, I look forward to seeing more photosynth explanation videos.
