July 12, 2011

Pop group Take That commissioned a 360-degree panoramic photo of Wembley Stadium?s 85,000 spectators to mark the last leg of their UK tour.

The image was captured on Saturday night by photographer Jeffrey Martin using a professional DSLR and lens, mounted on a robotic tripod head.

Up to 1,000 separate images were sorted, merged and enhanced using stitching technology supplied by

Speaking before the Take That shoot, a Wembley spokesman said: ?One of the biggest challenges will be to ensure continuity of light as the shot will be taken over several hours as the sun goes down and the pyrotechnics start to light up the stadium.?

Wembley Stadium chairman Melvin Benn said: ?I hope the 360-degree photo will give fans a very special memento of the band?s record-breaking Wembley shows.?

Martin was also the photographer behind the 360-degree image of the FA Cup Final, held at Wembley in May.
