Mini World Globes: Photography

I did not take these pictures – but watch this space!  Click on the images to be taken to its original source.

Since planet Pluto got the boot from our Solar System list, people have been busy creating their own little planets. This style of photography has been called many things (Wee Planet Making, Panorama Planets, etc) but whatever you call it the main focus of this photographic awesomeness is Stereographic Projection which is a process that is used to make up a sphere from a 360 x 180 panorama photograph.  It is very tricky to master, but once you have it the results are incredible.
