360 Degree- A Vision Apart :
From traditional photography that was once used to capture existence, to the time where each photo captured now has a completely different meaning . Moving on with time people have always demanded change, and thus this need has always been the mother of all invention. As we go by the trends of photography, we notice how we changed from traditional to candid photography and to the newest trends that have the ability to capture photograph in 360 degree.
Yes, you heard it right. 360 degree photography and videography implies capturing every thing that is happening with your camera and later watching the same video using the zoom in and zoom out feature, making you feel as if you are watching it happen in front of you.
Next Level Wedding :
Weddings have a real impact on people, on a broader prospect as the elders might say; a mark on the society is what they want. Also the people would always tell you, when you’re planning a wedding, it’ll fly by, be sure to enjoy it, and I knew they were right,” says Will Goldstone, who had his London nuptials recorded with a Kodak SP360 4K Action camera. “A 360 degree video allows not only to capture that viewpoint, but also the guest reactions and the atmosphere in a way that would never be possible with an ordinary video-cam.”
World Of Virtual Reality :
If everything ever seen were real, and you could believe it like an old saying ” Anko Dekha Sach Hota Hai” which implies everything seen with the naked eye can’t be a lie. Virtual reality would have been the reality of this world.
Basically virtual is a computer technology that uses virtual reality headset, sometimes in combination with physical spaces or multi-projected environments, to generate realistic images, sounds and other sensations that simulate a user’s physical presence in a virtual or imaginary environment.
