Recently, I learnt about 360 digital panoramic photography styles. The concept itself is just quite unnatural. Combining a series of sequential photograph into one image which cover all of a 360 degrees viewpoint. For your information, a full spherical format of 360 panoramic photography has three (3) types of projection. Equirectangular, little planet, and cubic. It depends on what kind of usages that we want. If we are going to create a 360 world simulation, then equirectangular or cubic would fit the most. But, if we aim for just an artistic single photograph, little planet is the best I think. By some luck, I realized that the little planet projection have a similar characteristic, its symmetrical aspects. It sounds interesting right?
Here is one of my little planet experiments. It is not quite a successful result though. It was so tricky and very difficult, after all. But, at least I began to understand the concept now.
Salam jepret! 😀
