Little Planet Photo Shows a Total Solar Eclipse Over Norway

When a total solar eclipse occurred back on March 20, 2015, photographer György Soponyai decided to capture it in a creative way. He shot a series of photos of the sun traveling across the sky above Norway, and then stitched the images together into the above "little planet" photo of the sun being eclipsed.

Little Planet Photos That Feature Rocket Launches, Air Shows, and Mars

Estonian photographer Andrew Bodrov of 360Pano has been shooting panoramic photographs for over a decade in countries around the world. His work even spans planets: last year he released an interactive panorama created using photos shot on Mars.

One of his interesting side projects is his Little Planets series, which features stereographic projections created using some pretty interesting source panoramas.

Jaw-Dropping Little-Planet Photos That Span the Four Seasons

We've shared examples of stereographic projection (AKA "little planet") photography here before, but none quite like these. Sydney-based visual artist Catherine Nelson creates some of the most amazing "planets" we've seen by stitching together hundreds of individual photographs. Trained as a painter and having worked on feature films like Moulin Rouge and Harry Potter, she uses her visual effects expertise to combine the images in creative and surreal ways.
