360 night panoramas: Halloween in the Mare Island cemetery

During Saturday night’s Nocturnes alumni event on Mare Island, I did a series of 360 degree night panoramas using a Nodal Ninja R1 pano head and the new no hood version of the Tokina 10-17mm fisheye lens on a Canon 5D Mark II. This setup only requires 4 shots around to make a complete spherical 360 degree panorama. While I was shooting there were kids running through the graveyard with flashlights and glow sticks, people dressed up in costume, and a group of ghost hunters who were trying to communicate with the dead.

Access to this previously off-limits area is now possible by visiting the Mare Island Shoreline Heritage Preserve on Friday, Saturday or Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.. The Preserve happened to be open until 10 p.m. for a Halloween party, and we were able to photograph in the cemetery after dark. Visiting the Preserve will also give you a glimpse of the buildings along the shoreline, but this area is fenced until further cleanup happens.

Stay tuned for more 360 night panoramas of historic Mare Island!
