I tried something new today, and just like the title says, it’s about 360-degree panoramic pictures and teaching you guys the basics of making one! I’m no expert, but I guess my first try wasn’t so bad (I think!?!) And because of that, I’m gonna share to you guys the rundown! Who knows, this could be the start of a beautiful virtual tour business :D And just between you and me, virtual tours are actually rising in demand these days. Hohoho.
For those who still have no idea what panoramic photos are, they’re simply a single image containing stitched-up photos offering a far more wider perspective than what even fish-eyed full-frame cameras can. Basically, if you stand facing one direction and make a full turn, then that’s the perspective a 360-degree panoramic photo would encompass.
Here are my attempts in making one:
From outside my house:
From outside the terrace (spot the area where I made a mistake :D)
There are certain rules to be strictly followed if you want to produce a good one, and that is also to avoid irrevocable mistakes in the post-processing later. To do that, you might even need expensive specialized equipment for fast and efficient production. But we ain’t aiming for fast and efficient, are we?! XD In any case, it’s possible to do even with only a cheapo camera with no tripod, given the right conditions.
