I've posted a new article over at the Triple Exposure website on 360˚ Panoramic Images.
“As many explore panoramic photography, they off stop short (at least of making a full 360˚ arc). The truth is that its gotten much easier to make a fully actualized 360˚ image. If enough photos are taken, then a large panoramic image can be made. These photos can then be turned into an interactive panoramic for the web or brought into Adobe After Effects to serve as a backdrop for chroma key footage.”
