I am still working on the images from my trip to Utah and Arizona in May this year. Many of the images I took on this trip are 360-degree panoramas. However, they require a slightly different workflow:
- The stitched image must not be cropped.
- If the 360-degree panorama HDR (High Dynamic Range) image, the HDR imaging software must be able to render a 360-degree image. That is, the rendering software recognizes that the image is continuous.
- The nadir should be edited to remove the tripod- this can be done several ways.
Here is a 360-degree panorama of Snow Canyon State Park Jenny’s Canyon presented as a 2-d rectilinear image:
Here is the same image presented as a 3-d spherical image:
