High Dynamic Range panoramas should, in our view, be a first stop for any visualization of architecture, planning or design projects. They are quick to capture and provide a useful context for off site meetings or online communication of design. In addition they can be used as the basis for 3D modeling, complete with realistic lighting via the HDR capture.
The image above is of St John’s Church in Hampstead – a Grade I listed building and has stood on the site since 1823 in an architectural style more reminiscent of New England than London churches of its time.

The St John’s website notes that:
‘As a proprietary chapel, St John’s is recognised as a church within the London Diocese of the Church of England but has complete independence in financial matters. It receives no support from and makes no contribution to Diocesan Funds. It is entirely self supporting and all costs, including staff and building costs, are borne by the congregation which has owned the building since 2003 when they bought it from the family trust which had owned it and leased it to them since the First World War’.
