can someone please tell me how to shot a 360 planet photo? thanks!!
360 planet like this!!! I don't know what you call it. I know they use a fisheye lens for it. Thats all I know.
Wow, no idea. . .sorry not much help, but cool pics none the less.
Looks to me like they either shoot straight down with a craaaaaazy fisheye lens, or more likely, they shoot up at a mirrored ball and photoshop out the camera after (look at the second one where there is a darker circle patch in the middle.
They are called 'magic circles' and are made using the Polar Coordinate filter in Photoshop or an other image editor.
i found out how to do it!!!
So, are you going to share your new found knowledge?
I did a project on this.
Its called Polar Coordinates. Pretty good guides on photojojo.
Here's a link. Not sure if it's THE link but I'm done searching:
