Salón de Cabildos of Guanajuato City Hall (City Councils Room)

Miguel Angel Victoria Fotógrafo

The City Hall of Guanajuato is located at La Paz Square facing Nuestra Señora de Guanajuato Basilica. This building was built in 1710, and originally was one of the royal houses. Later, it was seat to the “Alcaldía Mayor” (the supreme court from the old regime of the Hispanic America), then to the intendant and province, and finally to the state of Guanajuato.

In this house, Benito Juárez was the president who declared the city of Guanajuato as the capital of the Mexican Republic.

In this house, Benito Juárez was the president who declared the city of Guanajuato as the capital of the Mexican Republic when the country was under the French intervention in 1858. To remember this event, are displayed an allusive plate and sculpted his face beside the main gate. On the main staircase is displayed a mural by José Chávez Morado as reference to the then president Juárez.

How this Virtual Tour was made

The equipment used to perform virtual tour are the following:

  • Nikon D810 DSLR Camera
  • Lens Sigma 8 mm Fisheye
  • Nodal Ninja NN4 Tripod Head
  • Manfrotto 190 Carbon Fiber Tripod
  • Remote Switch

The software processing of the image was

  • Lightroom to process RAW files
  • PTGui for stitching images
  • Photoshop general and local settings
  • PanoTour Pro for generating virtual tour
Some times when making 360 spherical pictures we may find that there are placed some mirrors on the walls where can be seen our reflections, and one of the interestings of the Virtual Reality is that the photographer shouldn’t be seen.
There are various ways to solve this problem. I suggest two: the first one is using the Clone tool in Photoshop if the area behind the camera has a uniform texture, and the second one, as we did in this occasion, you can take a flat photo and use masking-layers in Photoshop to fuse the two pictures. The result is awesome.
