I love Microsoft Photosynth

I’ve tried some panorama apps on my iPhone 4, but nothing beats Microsoft Photosynth, and it’s free. It’s incredibly simple to use, just turn your camera in a circle and it will automatically capture and stitch the next image. I highly recommend using a tripod or a long stick on the ground to keep your camera steady. The software uses image tracing to stitch the images together, and if your camera moves away from the original spot, it will be more difficult for the software to track your movement due to a change in perspective in a new location. This app is a lot of fun, and people will always wonder why you are spinning in a circle with your phone, and it easily impresses anyone that you can take these with your phone.


Here are some of mine.

El Bob stays at Hotel Monaco

El Bob recently visited Inner Harbor Baltimore and stayed at Hotel Monaco. This magnificent structure was built in 1906 as the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad headquarters. This hotel is a great bargain compared to New York hotels, at double the floor space for a quarter of the cost. I will be sure to come back for future projects. The staff are extremely friendly and completely open to photography even with tripods on property.

Ravel Hotel

I really enjoy shooting at the Ravel Hotel because it’s very affordable for a modern hotel in New York. Some rooms have ultra large bathrooms for the same price. It’s slightly inconvenient to get to since it’s in Long Island City. This is a popular choice for my intime sessions.
