This was an experiment to see how close up shooting with the GigaPan Beta would work. The doll house was constructed by my wife who does it for a hobby. It was a kit, the "Plum Pudding" model by a company called Lilliput and purchased at a little shop in town called 'The What Not Shop' that has a tremendous selection of miniature stuff for these type of doll houses.
Some things I learned by trying this: 1. I needed a lot more light. Even using two high powered studio lights I still had to shoot at 1/20th of a second in order to go to 100 ISO. If I had had more light I would have been able to get a faster shutter speed and possibly a greater depth of field which would have made more of it in focus. 2. The GigaPan stitching software didn't handle the combination of the two shots, the front and back, as cleanly as it should have. Perhaps if I had made a larger area surrounding the main subject matter it wouldn't have fudged out the center where the two views merged. Live and learn. Still pretty cool that it ended up as good as it did.
