The Undertones are probably the best known little rock band to come out of Derry during the late 1970s punk era. Their hit “Teenage Kicks” was famously touted as his “favourite record ever” by influencial DJ John Peel. Four out of the original five members reformed the band in November 1999 with Paul McCloone filling the fifth spot as lead singer. Since then they have undertaken tours of the UK, Ireland, Europe and North America.
This 360° panorama was shot just as The Undertones played “Teenage Kicks” as the big finale to their concert as part of “The Picnic in The Park” organised by the Friends of Brooke Park on 4 th August 2007 in Derry.
Although it had drizzled a bit, earlier in the afternoon, the rain held off throughout the hour or more for which they played. They even sang “Here comes Summer” without fate's sense of irony intervening.
This panorama was created by combining about a dozen separate digital photographs. They were shot in the middle of the crowd without the usual tripod. Camera held at arms length above the photographers head I rotated slowly taking photographs in each direction.
Because of the way that it was created this is a very high resolution image (the equivalent of about 80-megapixels). It's capable of delivering very fine detail even when printed at massive sizes.
It can be printed so large that it tests the limits of Imagekind's framing service. You could print it at: - 24″x24″ and frame it with a 4″-6″ mat - 36″x36″ and frame it with no mat, or with one up to 2″ - 36″x36″ on canvas - 44″x44″ on paper and have it framed elsewhere.
At sizes up to 24″ square it will look good. At the larger sizes it is a real stunner!
George Row, Derry Member Since December 2009 Artist Statement I've been a computer programmer, an academic, a website producer, but I've always been a Photographer. At present my specialty is Panoramic Photography. I like the challenge - after a decade of making panoramas I'm still learning!
My early 360° panoramas were for immersive virtual reality (on the computer). Now I'm exploring printing. The "stereographic projection" turns the immersive panorama into a "little planet"- as if the landscape's horizon was the edge of a globe.
I live in Derry in Northern Ireland my early panoramas were of Derry and its surroundings. My website veryderry.com provides a virtual tour of the city.
Now I’ve shot panoramas all over Ireland. I'll be adding them to my gallery.
