New image of the month now online. Sorry it is late this month, I’ve recently been caught up with moving house and working on the new website. Everything is getting back to normal now – just!
The image of the month was taken at the Expowest food and drink show, three day event at Westpoint just outside Exeter. We had a stand there with a 42″ plasma running our images. Thank you to everyone who visited us there, it was lovely to see you all.
Watch this space as more images of the show are on there way soon.
Our new web site is now online !! Please spend a few moments browsing through it. You might want to have a look at our Gallery page, where you will find a nice selection of immersive images to look through.
At Sphereworks our process involves taking between 8 and 10 separate images around a central point using a tripod and rotator. This means the image you see will be a true 360 representation of the interior or space you are looking at – we call this Immersive Photography
These images are checked in Photoshop and, then stitched together in software to form an equirectangular image. The equirectangular is then saved as a cubic file where it is mapped onto a grid for viewing through 360 degrees.
These images can be cropped for print as a visually stimulating panorama or as headline banners as part of a new web site.
Creating situational awareness is a key part of our business, placing people in environments they have an interest in or want to look at, choosing a holiday destination for example.
A recent case study of the Rock House Hotel in Lynmouth has shown an increase of 5 weeks additional bookings for the first time in 5 years as a result of running a Sphereworks Virtual Tour for the past 12 months.
Customers like the ‘moving camera’ and the fact they can see where they will actually be staying and the level of accommodation on offer. Upgrades to the site this year will include Bedrooms and ‘Areas of Specific Interest’ to increase the visitor experience to this part of North Devon.
The Directors would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for spending some time visiting our site. We hope that you have enjoyed our work and found our photography to be visually stimulating.
