These five tips will help you make more impressive 360° VR photos.
- Here comes the sun
- Ditch the thumb
- Don’t get too close
- Go remote
- Get vertical
1. Keep the sun on the side
When a lens faces the sun, it receives much more light than the other side and this often results in a visible halo that reveals the stitching line.
|Pro tip: Seek out shots when the light is filtered: Can your shot be framed to block a large light source with buildings or clouds?|
2. Use a selfie stick or small tripod
Without a tripod . . .
. . . and with a tripod
I can guess what your next question is . . . so here is the tripod I use in the field.
3. Avoid the extreme close-up
Faces distort easily when they are too close
4. Use a remote control app
Tripping the shutter with an app
5. Watch the horizon
This is what happens when your camel ride makes it hard to hold the camera vertical . . .
