How to Shoot 360-Degree Photos With Your Smartphone
When Google Street View first came out, it was an amazing technical achievement. Browsing 360° Street View photos felt a lot like actually going to all these places!
Those photos were made by expensive and bulky cameras mounted of cars, but today 360° photo making is becoming more accessible for everyone thanks to a new generation of devices such as Ricoh Theta S or the Samsung Gear 360.
