Shooting Panorama's for the National Gallery of Canada

I was extremely fortunate to have been commissioned by the National Gallery of Canada to produce a number of panoramic interior photos of their various gallery collections.

For those who have been to the gallery, you already know that photography inside the areas with art is prohibited, and there's always a keen security guard watching over every room. I received special permission to spend the day shooting there, with tripod and rolling case, and still had to be accompanied by a staff member at all times.

The great thing about panoramic images like these, is that they're well-suited for websites, anyone who recently updated their Facebook timeline photo will know how difficult it is to find something long and narrow that fits. I've produced a number of these for families, and a few for my commercial interior clients (though often their needs are more square than long).

This was definitely a situation where my 24mm tilt-shift lens came in handy. To cover such a large space with as much variety as the National Gallery, we had to work fast. I was quickly able to position the lens in a way that I could shift it right, centre, and right composing three frames that I later combined in Photoshop.

It's a bit of a process but the results are well suited to my clients needs and offers a unique perspective of their galleries. You'll see these images showing up on their website at www.gallery.ca over the next few months.

What striking room designs. This is the first time I've seen or heard of this place, and it looks like a must-visit for me.I'm glad they let you in there to take these great photos!
 
I see a bit more of why so many people get engagement photos done there..

Amazing perspective, great work.
 
Really nice! There's only one I don't like as much, but I think it's because it makes me feel uncomfortable / claustrophobic. Can you guess which one I mean?
