Virtual Reality Made Virtually Simple

Virtual Reality for Photographers



Course Overview

This 3 hour course is designed to teach you how to create seamless QuickTime virtual reality shots. The demand for QuickTime VRs has skyrocketed in recent years and many high-paying clients ask for these in addition to any other shoots you might provide. However, many shy away from doing them because they think they are difficult. You’ll learn how to make high-end QuickTime VRs within an hour plus you’ll get a two-hour masterclass on how to painstakingly retouch a QuickTime VR and a bonus video on using the panorama you captured to create the stylish “tiny planet” look.
