Create a Stereographic using 360 Panorama | Weekly Photo Challenge

This weekly photo challenge is deigned to complement our free online photography basics classes. Each week we will set a different theme and your homework is to go out and photograph a collection of images related to that theme.


You can start this challenge whenever you like and do the different themes in any order you see fit. Think of these challenges as a photography workout. Don’t just do them once and not revisit them. If you do start these challenges as you begin our online basics classes then in a few months why not revisit older challenges to see how much better a photographer you have become.

Also try to think outside the box as much as possible. Photography is as much about creative interpretation as it is about technical prowess.


If at any time you’d like a critique of your images then please feel free to email us.


This week we’re having two photo challenges and all you need is a smartphone and a couple of recommend apps.


I love creating images on the go with my iPhone camera and sharing them via Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram.


Just because I’m a professional photographer it doesn’t mean that I can’t have fun with photography once and a while.


One of my favourite apps at the moment is 360 Panorama by Occipital.

Not only can you create 360 degree panoramas that can be viewed on your phone or online but you can also create Stereographic images.


A Stereographic is simply a spherical panorama and until recently would have to be created using a tripod, Photoshop and lots of patience.


Here’s a couple that I’ve made. Each one took me about a minute to create in the app.

To start off with walk to the middle of a field and create your panorama then once it has been stitched simply select Stereograph from the dropdown menu.

Once you have mastered the field shot try other scenes.
