The Panographers - Episode 2: OCEANS (underwater panoramas)

Oceans cover about 70% of the Earth's surface yet until recently there hadn't been an abundance of documentation in the form of underwater spherical panoramas.  Standing on a beach on a stormy day and looking out across the water it's not hard to imagine why. The ocean poses logistical, technical and physiological challenges to a panoramic photographer, whether shooting spherical panoramas and "underpans" or with specialized hybrid systems. This episode will give you an amazing glimpse into the people who have not only risen to the challenge but have created masterworks. People who have combined engineering with an unparalleled creative vision and tackled the problems from all sides. We'll dive into the nitty-gritty and hope you rise to the surface inspired.
