The college football season is under way in Columbia, Missouri and we kicked it off by photographing the first game of SEC conference play for the Missouri Tigers and Georgia Bulldogs. The game also marked the annual Tiger Stripe game for Mizzou. Fans in alternating sections wore black and gold to create the tiger stripe.

I wanted to try something a little different to capture a new photo of the tiger stripe in the stadium. I brought out a panoramic head and monopod to create a full 360 degree image of the stands as the players were running onto the filed. After a little Photoshop work I was able to create a really cool 360 degree tiny world panorama of the field. This was the first time I have tried something like this and I thought the results were pretty good. You never quite know what you are going to get when you are stitching multiple photos together with people moving in the frame. I think I have caught the 360 bug and am trying to think of new ways to incorporate this technique into my work.
