360 degree panorama

We’ve been doing some 360° panoramic photography lately. It involves using a panoramic head, shooting a lot of photos at a lot of angles, and using specialized software to stitch it all together and create an immersive experience.

The two images above are samples of photos stitched together but not put into the viewer software. I think they look pretty cool as is, since it gives you a view of a space you can’t actually get by just looking at it. It’s similar to how HDR imaging provides you a view of the world that exists, but you can’t really see.

    Very nice. What is your preferred stitching software? I used one that is was a friend’s phD thesis some years back, but it wasn’t particularly easy to use.

    We’ve used a number of different software packages, and are still finding out which are better than others for this sort of thing… and of course, Photoshop! ;)
