Your University, One Photo at a Time

A Bend In The Avenue

University Avenue Panorama

Sometimes a shot or series of shots just doesn’t work in the way you intended, but regardless ends up as an interesting result.

The above panorama is shot from the corner of Kelvin Way and University Avenue, with most of the University campus sitting up the road to the left. The two other buildings most visible in the panorama are the Glasgow University Union in the middle, and Gilmorehill Centre on the right. That church looking building. Yeah, the church without a spire. It’s actually a part of the University and houses the Department of Theatre, Film and Television Studies.

    That’s a fantastic photo. One day I too will have a camera that can do fancy tricks!

    • Thanks! =)

      You don’t need a fancy camera with fancy tricks (although they sure are fun!), just a photo stitch program for making panoramas (plenty of free ones online). Then just take a few shots like one would a panorama, but play around.

      Usually you get a nice panorama, or a higher quality shot, like the one I had earlier ( If you tilt the camera a bit after each shot, you end up with something like the above. Also happens if you try to keep each independent shot level, creating an artificial curvature to the shot.
