In December 2017, as I was struggling to figure out where I should push my career to, I started to look online and discovered the 360 Video section of YouTube.
360 panorama imaging was nothing new to me, as I dabbled with it briefly in 2003 and again in 2011.
It never really stuck with me though, as the technology seemed cumbersome, and the result was just ok.
I have seen 360 video footage on the Toronto Blue Jays Facebook page in partnership with Samsung before and thought it was amazing! Especially paired up with a mobile device and the ability to look in any direction.
I looked deeper into the topic and learned about 360 cameras.
I ordered one on Black Friday and when it arrived I began to capture all kinds of moments.
I quickly learned that the Samsung Gear 360 that I got was a great tool, but it was not a professional camera.
So, I ended up deciding to invest in the future, and jumped straight into the deep end with an 8K Insta360 Pro.
I produced my first work with it in late January 2018 and a week later it was put to the test.
Almost a month later, and several tests I can say now, that I am in the 360 Virtual Reality realm!
I look forward to producing a lot more content for the web and beyond!
