PRLog - July 26, 2012 - BOONTON, N.J. -- As a creative and expressive endeavor, Ryan Ganley has been exploring panorama photography during his several years of traveling as far as China and as close as his own back yard. His Little Planets are created by warping an image from a horizontal panoramic into a Toroid or a doughnut shape. Utilizing this technique, Ryan transforms his current panoramas into an all encompassing image. "The little planet series gives the viewer the feeling of separation between themselves and the subject, as if they were watching these planets float past. They give the impression that this place exists as its own world and has no other connections. It is a small world after all", says Ganley.

A Little Planet starts out as a traditional panoramic image that has been created by a wide angle lens. That image is then stitched together using photoshop and manipulated into a circle by bringing the two ends of the panorama together. Stereographic photography projection has been used in making world maps for years, however the opposite approach is used to make a Little Planet. The human eye has its limitations, for example, we can't see what is behind us in the way that a frog is able to. A 360 degree panoramic can provide us with all of that information, but still has a beginning and an end. Where as
Little Planets do not, they are an endless sphere that allow a true grasp of an entire scene. For this reason, Ryan Ganley's Little Planets truly encompass what a panoramic should be.

Ryan Ganley also serves as the owner and director of RySight Studios, LLC. an ad agency specializing in web design & photography.
