Other Hobbies

Here are a few of my other favorite hobbies...

I've always been interested in taking panoramic images and today's hardware and software for capturing, stitching, and displaying panoramic images is fantastic. Here are some of my many experiments with panoramic images taken with a wide variety of techniques and stitched together with several different software applications.

I've used a number of cameras to create these spherical equirectangular images including Google Pixel cell phones, a DJI Mavic Pro drone, Insta360 One and Rylo 360 degree cameras.

These videos were taken with either an Insta360 One or a Rylo 360 degree camera. I haven't found many opportunities to take good 360 degree videos, so these are just a few attempts at capturing something worthwhile.

Wildlife Videos
I also enjoy capturing videos of wildlife, especially here in the Sonoran Desert. Many of these videos were recorded right in my own yard, but another favorite video location is the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum.

I'm not a very good drone pilot, but I enjoy taking landscape related videos with my DJI Mavic Pro. The DJI drones are easy to fly and have a variety of Quickshots that make for interesting reveals.

The Virtual Tours page currently contains a test tour about my 3 week stay in Orvieto, Italy and also a final tour of my entire trip to Italy (which also includes the Orvieto tour). It is an interactive experience that combines some of the images, panoramas and video taken during the trip.
