360: 9-11 Memorial Lights


Tonight I got VIP access  to the rooftop of the parking garage that hosts the 911 Memorial lights.

What a site to see, families and officials come to pay tribute to the loved ones lost on Sep 11, 2001

Click here & Here to see the two 360 degree panorama virtual tours.

The images are compromised of 9 images stitched together. I used the Nodel Ninja 4 Pano head with the EZ leveler. The photo is compromised with 6 shots around, one up and two down.

To get the shot I placed the tripod on the outer wall of the parking lot just a few inches shy of the edge. For safety I attached my camera to my brother Avrohom who was with me with the leash from peak design.

Taking 360 degree photos is fun and aside for creating virtual tours you can export the images in various forms such as these mini planets.
