How this Virtual Tour was made

In many public places, for security reasons, it is prohibited from using tripods.

Some of these places are: airports, stadiums, museums, shopping malls.</p>

That is why, in order not to miss the opportunity to take pictures of virtual reality, I used the “technique variation phyllopod tone”.

Where you’re not really using a tripod and can be as fast possible. To rotate the camera around the point of no parallax.

The trick is to install to the front of the lens a tied piece of rope and at the end a coin or fishing rig to weigh down.

Which will help you keep a reference and keep the camera in the same place as you turn around to take the different pictures.

Four photos, one in each direction being taken and varying the pitch slightly up and down between shots.

Hang the currency or rig above the same spot on the floor.

Do not look at the camera, rather, look at the currency to keep it above the same spot on the ground. Take the first picture.

Then rotate 90 degrees and take the second picture, turning 90 degrees and take a third and fourth photograph.

With this achieve a fully spherical panorama taken without a tripod.
