Going Full Circle




Thanks to head-spinning technology, a N.H. photographer shoots 360° "I love New Hampshire with its interesting terrain," says Kirk Membry, a New Hampton-based photographer. That's why he finds joy in using his considerable skills to capture the state's landscapes and buildings with his digital SLR Canon camera. He especially likes to shoot panoramas, what he calls "the full immersive experience." And, with the introduction of computer software that "stitches" multiple digital photos together, he can create panoramas that show the scene all around him. "It's a full 360 degree horizontal and 180 degrees floor to ceiling," he says. "It wouldn't be possible without the computer. The software corrects the distorted fish-eye image." It also allows you to click and drag your mouse inside the image to look around. Go to Membry's Web site, www.mosscreek media.com, and you'll see 360° shots of ice fishing in Meredith, a snowmobile meet, Portsmouth harbor, the interior of a Cog railway car (very cool) and the concession area of the now-closed Ioka Theater in Exeter (also very cool), among lots of others. Membry does his panoramas for fun, but he also has launched a business, Moss Creek Media, that provides the opportunity for businesses to make use of the technology. It would allow real estate agencies, B&Bs and other tourist-related businesses to present, literally, a full view of what is offered. "Really, it's great for any business that has an interesting space and wants more than a still picture." He's also getting into aerial mast photography, where the mast holds his camera as high as 50'. "It changes the perspective in an interesting way, as it does with the panorama shots," he says.
