Mathematics Meets Photography

The Mathematical Association of America (MAA) publishes a monthly journal titled "Math Horizons." This publication explores the world of mathematics as seen by educators, students, and artists looking to learn more about the ways in which math is used in everyday life. This article from the September 2011 issue explores how math informs digital photography and the creation of all-around panoramic shots (a series of overlapping photographs in every direction from the exact same point in space). The piece starts by explaining how such panoramic photographs are created and then goes on to demonstrate a variety of other photographic projects. The article also discusses stereographic projection and the world of visible spheres. Written in language that is both erudite and accessible, and peppered with beautiful photographs, the piece is quite a delight and worth sharing.
