How to shoot your own custom 360 HDRIs for less than $360
What You Will Need
- A Theta 360 Camera: This camera is a lightweight simple camera that shoots and stitches 360 photos with one click.
- Simple HDR: I collaborated to make this app with my friends over at the excellent Built Light team. We made this iPhone app to make shooting the correct bracketed images for HDR photography very simple. Choose from Pro or Auto mode and in less than 30 seconds you have a series of photos to combine together to make a full 360 HDRI.
- Photoshop: Use Photoshop to combine all your bracketed photos together and save as an HDR to use in your 3D program or to archive.
Quick Note From Nick: If you shoot your own 360 HDRIs, either with a Theta or more traditional ways let me know in the comments. We need you for an upcoming project!
