Speakeasy Art presents: Ryan Ganley: Little Planets
"Ryan Ganley: Little Planets" August 3 - September 1 artist's reception: Friday, August 3, 2012 from 6-9pm
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 woicv 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.
