How this Virtual Tour was made

The equipment used to perform virtual tour are the following:

  • Nikon D810 DSLR Camera
  • Lens Sigma 8 mm Fisheye
  • Nodal Ninja NN4 Tripod Head
  • Manfrotto 190 Carbon Fiber Tripod
  • Remote Switch

The software processing of the image was

  • Lightroom to process RAW files
  • PTGui for stitching images
  • Photoshop general and local settings
  • PanoTour Pro for generating virtual tour
A few days ago, my friend Engineer Enrique Maytorena, CODESIN General Manager, invited me to elaborate the virtual tour of the inaugural flight of Culiacan Volaris to Phoenix. The idea excited me a lot and I proposed to manage the corresponding permits to make a spherical photograph of the interior of the cockpit of the pilots, I think it is the first time that one is made in our country and many places in the world.
They are very difficult images to achieve due to different situations … the reduced space … the detail that is required of all the instruments on the dashboard in front and on the roof of the plane … the high contrast, which I achieved with a very nice technique that Are the Masks of Luminance in Photoshop … and above all because to make the photographs of the interior I was permitted only … 3 minutes!!!!
I finally think I got it!
I am very happy with the result.
