The Royal Palace of Stockholm

The Royal Guard

Today I went to the Royal Palace of Stockholm to photograph the Royal Guard at Skeppsbron. It was a lot of tourists there so I had to sit and wait for about 15 minutes until they leaved until I could take my pictures.

Before I started to take my pictures I asked the guard if he could stand still for 15 seconds. I know that they’re not allowed to talk so he just nodded back to me. Below you can see the finished photosphere.

The Royal Palace of Stockholm

Is His Majesty The King’s official residence and is also the setting for most of the monarchy’s official receptions.

This combination of royal residence, workplace and culture-historical monument open year round to visitors makes the Royal Palace of Stockholm unique amongst Europe’s royal residences.

The palace has more than 600 rooms divided between seven floors with a state apartment facing the city and smaller living rooms facing the inner courtyard.

 

Equipment used

This photosphere was taken with my Canon EOS 550D and Canon 8-15mm f/4 L USM Fisheye Lens. I used a Sirui P-326S Carbon fibre monopod and the Nodal Ninja R1 head with the RD5 rotator.

 

Post-Processing

All images was shot in RAW and post-processed in Camera Raw, PhotoShop, PTGui Pro and krpano Tools.
