Photograph A Scene : How To Capture 360 Degree Around
This is the most important step in creating a Virtual Tour
Correctly photograph the entirety of the scene ensures that the final picture will be good. An error in the editing phase is corrected by more edition. If the error is too important, we can always go a step back and restart the edition.
An error of photography, however, will require much effort and edition time to be corrected. If the error is so important to prevent the correct edition of the picture, then you will have lost not only the time spent in the failed editing, but also all the time spent photographing.
Not only the picture of the error will be useless, so are all those beside her that were intended to build a single panorama. In many cases it will also not be possible to return to the place to repeat shots and finally, all the effort will have been wasted.
So you should concentrate all efforts in this first stage. The well-taken photographs are a great help for the stitching programs. If the original images are good, programs may recognize them and do the editing automatically, almost without the intervention of the publisher.
If the images are defective, then you must manually edit them to correct the defects. It is a tedious, computer resource-intensive task making it slow, and in many cases it is impossible to ever get an acceptable result.
Take the necessary time to carefully photograph and you will win much time in editing while achieving excellent results.
In general, the photographing method will depend on the equipment available. In case we have a choice of accesorories or gear, then it is wise to take into account what is
the objective pursued. An artistic photographer priorities are likely to be different from those of a real estate agent wanting to create a large number of panoramas un the shortest time.
As a rule of thumb, the larger the number of shots taken, the longer will be the time needed to capture them and also the time needed to stitch them togheter. Single shot panoramas need no stitching but a conversion that programs do automatically. You can have a cup of coffee while the computer converts hundreds of photographs into hundreds of panoramas.
The advantages of the methods involving stitching of images, for their part, are two: the quality of the image is larger and the field of view covered can be wider. As we will see, this is not always true.
The advantage of shooting with a regular camera is that you probably already have one or you can borrow it. In contrast, for a 360 degree panorama, these cameras require many shots, which multiplies the work and time needed to photograph, and increases the possibility of errors in the way. If you drag the photographic work errors, then the editing time is increased significantly.
Another drawback of panoramas from regular cameras is that, of all the existing methods, they create panoramas with the lowest vertical viewing angle. The quality of the picture, however, is excellent, probably the best of them all and it's therefore the most appropriate method to create extremely high quality panoramas.
