The history of VR photography started a long time ago. The VR photography community has mistakenly referred to the no-parallax point as the “nodal point” so basically the end point of a lens use for pano stitching.
The rear nodal point of the swinging lens that is designed for panoramic cameras is the point which the lens swings or pans across. Though most VR photographers stitch a series of high res photographs together. The correct term for stitching panoramic photos together for no-parrallax point is the “entrance pupil”
All the principals of putting the camera or lens combination properly for panoramic stitching are the same and still apply. All are used and refer to the same alignment of the camera.
The original meaning of VR Photography is a form of human-computer interaction in which a real or imaginary environment is simulated and users interact with and manipulate that world.
VR photography is the art of capturing or creating a complete scene as a single image, as viewed when rotating about a single central position. Normally created by stitching together a number of photographs taken in a multi-row 360-degree rotation, the complete image can also be a totally computer-generated effect, or a composite of photography and computer generated objects.
VR Photography has changed modern years to virtual reality photography. Virtual tour companies like ours use the term to describe the interaction between a camera, stitching, and the real estate industry. In the modern day a virtual tour is typically taken of a house or property to help the person sell the property online. Though many companies use this for photographing different locations around the world.
