Photograph 360 Degree Around With A Spherical Mirror

The simplest accessory to capture panoramas with a single shot.

Pointing your camera at a mirror ball correctly located you can shoot 360 degree in one shot. The great advantage of photographing panoramas in a single exposure is the time saved. Not only the time spent in taking a single shot is much less than that needed to capture a whole sequence of photos but moreover having no image sequence to stitch there will be no need to spend time at editing job.

Simply point the camera from any direction to a mirror ball to get a 360 degree panorama reflected on its surface. However, the direction of the camera and mirror will determine the orientation of the picture. For the panorama to be really usable, its orientation must be vertical, that's to say the camera should point straight up or down, while the spherical mirror must be aligned with the axis of the lens.

The easiest way to do this is leaning the mirrored ball on any surface while pointing at it with the camera from above. However, to keep the camera in that position it would be necessary for a person or structure the hold it in place, and such person or structure would be visible in the image reflected by the ball. Consequently, the only effective way to shoot panoramas with a spherical mirror is hanging the mirror from above while the camera stands below and aligned with it pointing up.

Alternatively, hemispherical zenith mirrors hanging from a roof serve the same purpose, as in the example below.

Depending on the size of the ball and the distance from it to the camera, the reflected panorama extends from about the horizon line down to the nadir. You should try for the image of the ball to extend as close to the picture outer limits so the usable area of the photo will be larger resulting in a higher definition of the final panorama. Depending on the software choosen to interact with this panorama, the original image would be used as such or it may need to be converted to a rectangular format.

Before browsing this hemispherical image, we will complete the sphere's upper half, in this case with a black background.

The image so remapped can be navigated interactively. Since we have choosen to complete the sphere, we'll allow sperical navigation of this hemispherical panorama.

This example's photograph belongs to Dustin Stewart and here is its Original.
