Have you started playing with 360 photography yet? If you are using popular 360 cameras like the Insta360 one, Ricoh Theta or similar, you will discover that no matter what you do (short of hiding behind a tree) you will appear in all the photos, because the camera shoots the entire environment in 360 degrees to create that immersive VR photograph. Check out this tutorial, where I show you a really simple trick where you can make yourself vanish from your VR photos. Even if you aren’t shooting 360, there are some neat things to learn in this short tutorial. See below for a few tips on shooting 360 (including how to get 360 from any camera).

If you have stitched a pano shot from a non 360 camera, you need to edit the camera metadata to make it work. Photoshop. Lightroom and most editing apps won’t allow you to edit the EXIF data.

I hope this was useful and enjoyable!
