Spring Has Sprung
Today was a good day. The sun was shining. Air was clean because of reduced traffic. No contrails in the sky. Nature is blooming. Last night, before I went to bed, I made these 360 degree photos with a Ricoh Theta V in my studio. Trying to bring the fresh colors of spring inside my dreams. it helped. Spring has sprung and I'm feeling happy.
These are the equirectangular photos that came straight out of camera:
To get more technical about it let me explain how I made them: I attached the camera to a small rig I built with a monopod that does one full rotation in 20 seconds. While the camera is rotating on its own axis I moved it towards and away from the light source. The light source consists of a white LED strip with strobe controller set to fade in/out mode on one shot and to fast continuous strobe on the other. I used all the samples from local plastics factory in front of the LED strip for the fresh spring colors.
Here's the setup:
