EXCLUSIVE: Panoramic composite of Hawkwind, Bridport, Friday night...

Panoramic composite of Hawkwind, 2012

Many cameras can take panoramics by stitching together 3 successive photos in-camera. Not many people would try that at the front of a rock gig after several beers, though!

The result is odd, but not wholly awful. (L-R: Blake, Dibbs, Brock, Chadwick [drums], Hone, security guard's ear.)

For those who like techie info, I feel one important aspect is to pre-cue the three pix on the same initial area each time (ie, half-press the shutter) and then there's a fair chance exposure will be consistent across the whole of the composite. Incidently, the metadata shows I used Photoshop but that was just for cropping and file-size changes. I do that for ALL my photos.

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
