Slavin’s work has been shown in galleries and was featured in the December 2012 issue of Digital SLR Photography. According to the 2012 article, he stitches these 360° panoramas together from hundreds of images taken with his Nikon D800 and an ultra wide-angle 10mm or 14mm lens. He states that bracketing images correctly and using a small aperture for greater depth of field are important to his success in creating these amazing works of art.
