Full spherical 360° panoramas are an amazing way to explore the world. I was introduced to this form of photography by Tony Redhead, an industry veteran who has worked in the field of computers and digital imaging for the past 30 years. Tony has become my mentor and most importantly a very dear friend.
There are many challenges to developing full spherical 360° panoramas however I think the greatest challenge is image composition. Framing a shot that is 360 x 180 degree where literally everything you see will be in the final photograph means you have to choose your timing and position very carefully.
